Moosa Creek Blog

A Native Cutting Garden

Creekside Chat

 Moosa Creek grows Red Buckwheat from seed to insure its rich, dark red color. For unusual color, Iris ‘Chocolate Candy’ has short stems of velvety red-brown blooms and does well with some shade.

Pink: There are few pink blooming natives, but Cleveland Penstemon has them. Like all penstemons the tubular flowers are great for hummingbirds. Apple Blossom Yarrow is just lovely fresh or dried, as is Yarrow ‘Paprika’. All of these tough plants can withstand sun, heat, and regular or low water.
Purple and Blue: If you like to see annual lupines turning the roadways blue in spring, the evergreen Bush Lupine will treat you with purple spikes yearly in your garden. Douglas Iris has brilliant blue blooms with a lick of yellow. Sages such as Winifred Gilman Sage will add a beautiful scent to your bouquets.
Yellow: The deep yellow spikes of California Goldenrod bloom in autumn when not much else is, and it’s a keystone plant for wildlife. Of course there is a Yellow Douglas Iris to add to your collection; grow them all for amazing year-round arrangements. Daisies are the happiest flowers and the yellow and chocolate brown California Sunflower proves it. Easy and reliable, let some go to seed for the birds.
There are so many choices for a landscape full of native flowers, and these are just a selection of what you can bring in to brighten the indoors.
