    I will send, to the lucky bidder, a large selection of Native Grass and Forb seed. At least 15 small packets, enough to do a small prairie garden with, say, 5X5 or so. Full Sun/Part Shade, well drained soil. These plants are native to the Midwest, but will grow all over the US.

    some of them require cold/moist stratification. Plant 'em outside in the Fall. There ya go!

    Bid starts @ $3.

    Just for clarifications sake....when I say endangered, I mean it's endangered in my area...which is NE Illinois. News flash...I will also add some seeds from a plant known on these boards as Pu55y Toes. Also rare. My Pu55y Toes are going to seed! We both benefit! The Binomial is: Antennaria neglecta.

    Thank you, Est!

    The pus*ie toes that you have at home are Antennaria plantaginfolia. Very similar in appearance to A. neglecta. Most notable difference being the height. Plantaginfolia can get as tall as about 18-20". Neglecta has a more compact growing form and only grows to about 4-6". A. plantaginfolia is the show stopper pus*ie toes while neglecta just sort of hangs out and hugs the ground.

    Shows range of all Antennaria known to occur.

    Of course! I was just trying to capitalize on the fact, bump up the price a bit. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    And I shall not be foiled: $7.00 since no one else will do it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
