Dry/Sandy Sites

Cultivating a sandy or gravel-filled soil can feel like gardening in the desert. These species naturally grow and thrive in these otherwise-difficult situations. The Sand Prairie is now an endangered ecosystem but some of the showiest native species once covered vast areas. Bring some of these tough, drought-tolerant, native plants into your dry, sunny garden.
