At Bluestem Farm we grow high quality, diverse, local ecotype native plants and seeds, and draw on more than 30 years of ecological restoration experience to ensure that you get appropriate plants for your conditions. We custom propagate most species including orchids and rare plants. We believe in reducing our ecological footprint, and grow and sell plants that can help you reduce yours. We sell our plants at the Dane County Farmers Market and by appointment on the farm. We are not a mail order business. Consulting services include biological surveys, site evaluation, and seed mix design. </font></p> <p><font face="tw cen mt">We chose the name Bluestem Farm to honor four bunches of little bluestem that survived on what had been hard-grazed pasture prior to our acquiring the farm. We started restoration work shortly after purchasing the land in 1988. First we concentrated on restoring the prairie and oak savanna community and later put our energy into wetland restoration. We are fortunate to also have a mature red oak and maple woodland, and stream and riparian habitats. Such diversity is common in the Baraboo Hills and has given us a breadth of experience that few other nurseries have. Observing and working with the plants in the nursery as well as in their natural habitat gives us valuable insights into the requirements of those plants. Scott has worked with several public and private organizations in ecological restoration since 1979. He has been fortunate to study the progress of these projects for over thirty years!</font></p> <p><font face="tw cen mt">Our primary business is propagating wildflowers and other plants native to south-central Wisconsin, including hardy orchids. We start most species from seed, but we propagate a few species by cuttings or division if seed propagation is impractical. Our pot-grown plants are less likely to suffer from transplant shock than bare-root plants since the roots are undisturbed. All of our orchids are started in our laboratory since their seeds have specialized germination requirements. For more information on the orchids, see the Orchid Conservation Coalition website at <u><a href="http://www.orchidconservationcoalition.org/pr/bluestem.html.%20%20">http://www.orchidconservationcoalition.org/pr/bluestem.html</a></u>. Below is a <a href="#species">list of native plants</a> which we grow, along with a brief description of the sun and soil preferences of each plant. Not all are available at any given time, as we are a small nursery and unable to stockpile plants. Most plants are in 8.4 oz.(250 ml), 13 oz.(395 ml) or 1 qt. (.946 liter) pots, a few are plugs or are in larger pots. We grow domestic fruiting plants for edible landscaping, as well. Apples and pears are available bare root in the spring as either bench grafts or year-old established graftlings. We have potted grapes, blueberries, bush cherries, kiwis and currants from spring through fall. We are happy to do custom propagation of plants. </font></p> <p><font face="tw cen mt"> We are not a mail order business. We sell at the Dane County Farmers Market <u><a href="http://www.dcfm.org/">http://www.dcfm.org</a></u> in Madison - our stall is on Carroll St. between State St. and West Washington - and on the farm. We expect to be open on the farm many Sundays in May and June; call for hours. Other days we sell at the farm by appointment. </font></p> <p><font face="tw cen mt">In addition to native plants and habitat restoration, we grow much of our own food. Initially we wanted organic fruit production for our own use, but what started out as a hobby has now become a collection of over a hundred varieties of apples, pears, cherries, plums, and grapes. These include both heirlooms and some new varieties bred for cold climates and disease resistance. We eat the food that we grow, so we want it to be the finest possible. We avoid using poisons on our farm and use natural fertilizers (composts, mulches, manures, seaweed and rock powders) in the fields, although the potted perennials do receive some synthetic slow release fertilizer. </font></p> <p><font face="tw cen mt">As part of living lightly on the land, we:</font></p> <ul> <font face="tw cen mt"> <li>use no -cides on the fields or in the greenhouses </li><li>use only a limited amount of synthetic fertilizer in the greenhouses </li><li>use only sun heat in the greenhouses </li><li>produce our plants from seed or cuttings produced by plants on our own farm </li><li>have photovoltaics to provide most of the electric power for our house and farm </li><li>try to avoid unnecessary energy expenditures--in heating and cooling, lighting, and driving </li></font></ul> <font face="tw cen mt"><img style="border: 1px solid ; width: 300px; height: 281px;" alt="PrunusAmericana.jpg" src="PrunusAmericana.jpg" align="right" hspace="10" vspace="10"> <br><br><br><br><br>Wild Plum is an easy to grow small tree. It blooms young--when it's as small as 4 feet tall--and blooms very early, usually around the first week of May. The flowers are incredibly fragrant and well frequented by solitary bees. Wild plums are happy in either full sun or partial (filtered) shade, and in most soils as long as they aren't dry. On top of that they produce plums which make an awesome syrup or jam. The skin of the fruit is sharp tasting, but the flesh when fully ripe is as sweet as any other plum. They can eventually reach 10 to 15 feet tall. Wild plum has one potential problem as a yard tree: it sends up lots of sprouts from the roots, and will turn into a thicket if they are not mowed off. <br clear="all"> <img style="border: 1px solid ; width: 300px; height: 266px;" alt="RainGardens.jpg" src="RainGardens.jpg" align="left" hspace="10" vspace="10"> <br>Three Easy Species. These three species are very easy to grow rain or butterfly garden plants. All of them grow in full sun on intermediate to moist soils; Sweet Black-Eyed Susan can also grow in light shade. Prairie Blazing Star (<i>Liatris pycnostachya</i>, on the left) is a tall grower that blooms in late July or early August. The lavender flower spikes are full of nectar and pollen for butterflies. Some of the domestic blazing stars have been bred for reduced amounts of nectar; this negates their value to pollinators. Sweet Black-Eyed Susan (<i>Rudbeckia subtomentosa</i>, upper right) is another tall grower, sometimes reaching five feet but usually shorter. It, too, is attractive to butterflies. The flowers look similar to the more common Black-Eyed Susans (Common Black-Eyed Susan, <i>R. hirta</i> and Showy Black-Eyed Susan, <i>R. fulgida</i>), but this one is taller and bushier, blooms slightly later in the summer, and is more reliably perennial. Its' stems are rough, but not hairy-prickly like the Common Black-Eyed Susan. Wisconsin is outside of the historic range of Showy Black-Eyed Susan. Swamp Milkweed (<i>Asclepias incarnata</i>, lower right) blooms in late June or early July. In addition to being attractive, the flowers are very fragrant. It is a good nectar source for all sorts of pollinators. If you want to raise monarch butterflies you should know that it is one of the preferred milkweeds for the larvae to feed on. Swamp milkweed needs moist soils; you can get one year of blooming on average soils, but it is only likely to persist in wetter spots. The extra moisture in a rain garden may be just the thing to keep it going. <br></font><font face="tw cen mt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <img src="Hummingbird_at_Penstemon_pallidus.jpg" alt="Hummingbird at penstemon" style="width: 571px; height: 313px;" align="right">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </font><font face="tw cen mt"><br></font><font face="tw cen mt">&nbsp; <br> <br> <br> <br> White Penstemon lives fast and dies young, but it leaves behind a generous supply of seedlings.&nbsp; It tolerates a range of soils in full sun to light shade, and attracts hummingbirds as well as other pollinators.&nbsp;&nbsp; Prefers not to have a lot of grassy competition.</font><br clear="all"> <font face="tw cen mt"> </font><img style="border: 1px solid ; width: 300px; height: 340px;" alt="017_16A-b (158K)" src="Aster-novae.jpg" align="left" hspace="10" vspace="10"><font face="tw cen mt"> <br><br> <br> <br> This picture shows a Giant Swallowtail on the New England Aster outside our front door, with the inset showing two Monarchs on a different day. Around here, New England Asters are major nectar sources for Monarch butterflies while they are on migration in late August and September; it takes more than just milkweed to keep the Monarchs going. They are popular with all of the butterflies that fly in the fall, and are important for butterfly gardens. In bloom for a long time, often starting in August and continuing into October.&nbsp; I occasionally see a quicksilver-fast hummingbird visiting them. The plants are large (getting up to four feet tall) and vigorous growers; their tendency to self-seed can be an issue although you may not object while they are blooming! They do need full sun and intermediate to moist soil; too much drought will remove them from your garden. All of the asters are important for butterflies and bees that are preparing for winter, but on our farm I see the greatest density and diversity of visitors on the New England Asters. <br> <br clear="all"> <img style="border: 1px solid ; width: 300px; height: 429px;" alt="048_11-b.jpg (127K)" src="Calopogon%20tuberosus.jpg" align="right" hspace="10" vspace="10"> <br><br><br><br><br>Grass pink orchid (<i>Calopogon tuberosus</i>).

Beauty is more than skin deep; the plants may sometimes look a bit ragged to us, but the ones who really know flowers seem to find them infinitely attractive. Their many tubular lavender flowers are generous producers of nectar that draws in hummingbirds, hawk moths, bumble- and honey-bees, and many sorts of butterflies. Bergamot is easy to grow, not being particular about what kind of soil it has or whether it has full sun or partial shade. It also is vigorous without taking over the garden.&nbsp;&nbsp; If you want to watch bumblebees, bergamot is one of the plants that you need in your garden. <br clear="all"> <img style="border: 1px solid ; width: 300px; height: 225px;" alt="WildGeranium-b" src="WildGeranium-b.jpg" align="right" hspace="10" vspace="10"> <br><br><br><br><br>Wild Geranium (<i>Geranium maculatum</i>).

We do have two that we planted near the greenhouses on shallow mesic (intermediate moisture) soil that are both doing great.&nbsp; In late April or May Juneberries are covered with showy white flowers which develop into blueberry shaped reddish fruit in mid- to late June. They are tasty and productive, although the birds will attempt to harvest them all before you get to them. In fall the leaves turn glowing yellow. <br clear="all"> <img style="border: 1px solid ; width: 300px; height: 536px;" alt="014_12A-b (126K)" src="Dodecatheon%20meadia.jpg" align="right" hspace="10" vspace="10"> <br><br><br><br><br>Shooting Star (<i>Dodecatheon meadia</i>). Many older folks remember shooting stars on the farms where they grew up. It is declining in abundance in the wild; it is now found mostly in savannas and open woodlands, but formerly was common in prairies throughout southern Wisconsin. It is usually in bloom for Mother s Day. The flowers are incredibly fragrant. It is easy to grow, although slow to reach maturity.&nbsp; A plant may be four or more years old before you see flowers.&nbsp; Once it reaches flowering size it is likely to live many years and bloom most of those years unless seriously set back by a late spring burn or repeatedly being eaten by deer.&nbsp; It germinates well and should be included in more seed mixes. <font color="#6b6b9c"><h2><br> </h2> <h2>Species List<font face="tw cen mt">&nbsp;&nbsp; <small>(or print from <a href="Catalog%201-14.pdf">PDF file</a>)</small> </font></h2> </font> </font> <font face="tw cen mt">I've put brief descriptions of their growing requirements.&nbsp;
