There’s a big push lately to use native plants in your landscaping and gardening. There are all sorts of benefits and not many downsides. All you have to do is some research to learn which plants are native and how they would work in your yard. In fact, there is a statewide organization called INPAWS (Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society) dedicated to getting the word out. Be sure to check it out.
Tall Tickseed is on their list of native plants to use in the garden. It is a very tall prairie plant that looks nice when it’s planted in a group that has room to sway in the wind.
