Our New Woodland Edge Kit is curated to do well in an area that backs up to a woodland. This kit has 2 beautiful woodsy spring ephemerals: Bloodroot and Mayapple, along with early bloomers Columbine, Wood Poppy and Woodland Phlox, for early, spring blossoms. We included an extra low-growing Woodland Phlox and Wood Poppy (3 each) for a nice spread at the front of the garden bed. The Cardinal Flower, Blue Lobelia and Alumroot will add height, color and pollinator interest in mid to late summer through Sept. You will also see a lot of attractive and interesting foliage and seed pods to admire in this garden as it grows through the seasons!

Design and Planting Tips:

  • Prepare your garden site (follow the link for details as well as information about plant spacing)
  • A location with full to partial shade with moist soil conditions is ideal for this grouping
  • Group plants of the same species together
  • Consider the height of each plant. Position taller plants at the back and shorter plants at the front
  • Plant 1.5' apart

Kit Contents:
8 varieties, with 2 or 3 of each, as specified (18 total plants), all listed below with details. An image of each plant can be found to the left, pictured in the order listed:
