Pine Point Prairie 2009

[To see photos and stories of this prairie in other years, go to the links on the main Pine Point Prairie page.]

An interesting new plant showed up in the prairie this year.

7/19/2009  Rattlesnake Master – it’s native in southern Wisconsin, but is frequently planted farther north than its natural range.  I think this must have come from a stray seed in some of the other seeds I bought.  It has green spiky flowers and spiky leaves that look like Yucca.


8/9/2009   The prairie was great this year – lots of diversity and lots of flowers
