I’m a big fan of native plants. I’m a big fan of having my garden in bloom every day of the year. Early spring to midspring often presents a challenge regarding those, but there are plenty of choices — one being cheery Golden Alexanders, a prairie and meadow standby that’s tough as nails. Since it’s in the carrot family, it also serves as a butterfly host. Wow. Didn’t I just describe the perfect plant? Let’s learn more about it then.

“Noted” items are particularly good finds from my daily reading which I share via all my social media accounts.
