Louisiana Native Plants

Louisiana native plants perfectly designed for our heat, humidity, high rainfall, and adapted to our soils and pests. From a wide selection of Liatris and truly perennial Rudbeckias to vines like the tame Coral Honeysuckle as well as the rare but beautiful Louisiana Catchfly. These natives attract a host of pollinators from hummingbirds to butterflies as well as native bees and other garden beneficials so be sure to add them to your gardens, landscapes, and wildscapes like meadows and prairies.

 

Ooh la la! This award winning Louisiana Iris boasts deep velvety red falls with just a touch of golden yellow at their base for contrast, and these are centered by three more deep rich velvety purplish-red standards. Awarded the highest award a Louisiana Iris cultivar can receive from the American Iris Society, Red Velvet Elvis won the Mary Swords DeBaillon Medal in 2005. Louisiana Irises generally flower between March and May. Item# 10814.

The huge 4-6" wide, golden yellow, upward facing, dark-eyed daisies are centered by a wide contrasting band of deep orange-red and are produced throughout the growing season atop sturdy stems on an exceptionally free flowering perennial. The award winning Rising Sun® Chestnut Gold Black-Eyed Susan, a selection of our native Rudbeckia hirta, flowers continuously throughout the growing season which is a breakthrough for cultivars of this species which are normally long-day or summer flowering mainly. Its compact, well-branched, naturally rounded habit lends this cultivar to use as low-maintenance traffic-stopping specimen containers or add it to the garden and landscape for a riot of color from spring to fall. The central disk flowers offer nectar and pollen to bees, smaller butterflies, and other garden beneficials. Provide a full to mostly sunny site in a well-drained, average moist, fertile soil for optimum vigor and flowering. Images courtesy of Green-Fuse Botanicals, Inc., all rights reserved. Item# 12408

Clusters of bright golden yellow upward facing daisies are produced atop sturdy stems emerging from the rosettes of rounded low growing deep green foliage in early(8B) to late spring or early summer(3) depending on your cold hardiness zone. Roundleaf Golden Groundsel, Packera obovata, is very similar to the cutleaf Golden Groundsel, Packera aurea, but is more tolerant of full sun as well as light shade and drier growing conditions. This stoloniferous native perennial develops into an evergreen to semi-evergreen mat of low rich green foliage and its flowers attract many early season pollinators, especially bees. Use Roundleaf Golden Groundsel as a groundcover in informal and naturalistic garden settings as well as in roadside plantings, meadows, and prairies.

Clusters of dangling, 6-8" long, spike-like clusters of small urn-shaped white flowers are produced at the ends of the branches in spring and may be followed by showy yellow seed capsules that remain even into winter. The flowers are highly prized by native bees and by apiarists for producing Sourwood honey. The Sourwood, Oxydendrum arboreum, is a beautiful, deciduous, medium to large tree adorned with glossy green foliage that becomes deep fiery red in fall if grown in sunny conditions. It has a naturally pyramidal habit, especially when younger, and generally grows 20-40' high but may reach 70' under ideal conditions. The Sourwood is commonly found with wild azaleas, rhododendrons, Pawpaws and other acid loving species ranging from central Louisiana to southwestern Pennsylvania. It needs an acidic, loamy, well-drained, moist to average moist soil rich in organic matter and will likely benefit from an organic mulch applied over the root zone. The foliage has an acidic flavor giving the tree its name. Item# 12606
