The Private Prairie Style Garden

At the front garden Jan Spruyt has two square formed prairie style plantings surrounded by a formal lawn

In the great private garden of Jan and Anna Spruyt we admired the large prairie style planting just outside the big greenhouses with the huge tomatoes.

Vernonia arkansana `Mamuth', the Ironweed  has sturdy stem and violet flowers

The Swamp Milkweed, Asclepias incarnata, prefers moist or wet sites 

The Pale Coneflower is followed by the Largeleaf Phlox, Phlox amplifolia
