Wildflowers

single plant with many stems of arrowleaf shaped leaves from base with yellow daisy-like flowers

arrowleaf balsamroot

  • are beautiful
  • are hardy
  • are perennial or reseed easily (so you don’t need to buy them every year!)
  • are hosts for our native pollinators and fauna
  • fit naturally into traditional landscaping

BNP Wildflowers

  • are grown in containers
  • are propagated from seeds and cuttings we hand-collect from known sources and beautiful specimens
  • can be seen in the demonstration beds at our nursery
  • live out-of-doors and are not grown in a greenhouse (so they are extremely hardy!)

We are always propagating new species and we have many species in production.  Please contact us if you are looking for a species you don’t see listed below.
