Prairie Nursery has an excellent catalog of native plants and seeds with well-organized, useful information, as well as a good long-standing reputation as a native plant nursery. Unfortunately my plant order in Spring 2009 was badly mishandled by the delivery company; some plants were destroyed and promptly replaced by the nursery. Last fall when two plants bloomed they were a weedy Goldenrod, not the smooth aster and butterfly weed I ordered. In 30 years I've never had this weed (the plants were surrounded by chicken wire and I watched them grow from tiny pot size to bloom--they were definitely the plants in the pots sent to me). I did not follow up with the nursery about this but will not order individual plants again--you may want to carefully watch their potted plants to ensure you did not receive an unexpected surprise....

I actually went and picked up my plants in person to avoid the shipping charges (a hour and half drive). I was also told that the plants were dormant, but to me they also looked dead. I bought 15 plants, and of the 15 only 5 of them ever broke dormancy. The rest were dead as I suspected. I will stick with Bluestone next year, better value and better plants. Have never had a plant from Bluestone die.

On July 28th, 2006, jenireed changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

The company has contacted me and said they will replace any of the plants that never broke dormancy this fall.
