A Few Garden Worthy Native Plants

Macbridea caroliniana. Carolina bird's-in-a-nest.  A rare member of the Lamiaceae from the gulf coast that likes a rich, moist medium.  Not sure about hardiness in the North.  An easy plant to increase by vegetative means.

Lilium superbum 'N3 Georgia Jaguar'

Lilium superbum selection from Georgia.  A typical form of the species.

Phlox floridana, the Florida phlox flowers nearly year round under cool greenhouse conditions and is a stunning and vigorous plant.  Unsure about hardiness in northern climates, but Mary Henry successfully grew this at her estate in eastern Pennsylvania decades ago.
