Smooth Red Sunchoke (Jerusalem Artichoke)

(Helianthus tuberosus)

Full Sun to light shade. Native sunflower with large edible tuber, easy to clean variety

Native sunflower species with large nutritious tubers.  Very easy to grow (hard to get rid of!) and productive.  High in inulin, making them an excellent choice for diabetics.  Raw, they are crunchy and juicy with a faint sunflower-seed flavor.  Cooked they are like a watery potato.  A friend once pickled them and they were fabulous!  Can be harvested all winter so long as you can dig a hole.  Herbaceous perennial–dies to the ground each winter but gets going fast and furious in late spring.  Tall, rough stems can get 8′ tall or more with clusters of small yellow sunflower-like blossoms in the fall.  Makes plenty of biomass–might be good for hay, bedding, or mulch.  Will self-seed readily–beware as they have a notorious reputation for being hard to get rid of.  We recommend planting them in an out-of-the-way place you can mow around or you don’t mind them spreading in.  Pigs will root them up to eat the tubers in the fall.

From Oikos Tree Crops in Michigan, this sweet-potato-shaped variety has a stunning red/purple skin and lacks the lumpy side nodules that make most varieties hard to clean.  Not quite as productive as ‘Supernova’ but still plenty to eat each year. . North American native plant.

Field Pussytoes Groundcover

Antennaria neglecta

full sun to part shade. Native groundcover plant

As native as it gets! We sourced this plant from a field near the edge of our property where it was growing in pretty solid mats. Pussytoes is named after its flower which looks like cat’s feet, but it is grown more for it’s foliage. It grows in very poor, dry, compacted clay soil, and can take at least a half day shade. Host for the American Painted Lady Butterfly caterpillar. . North American native plant.

Celandine Poppy Stylophorum

Stylophorum diphyllum

Part to Full Shade. Native Woodland Wildflower

This attractive woodland wildflower will grow well in zones 4-8 in with little to no care in rich woodland soils. It can tolerate drier, sunnier sites with some care. Bright yellow showy flowers bloom in April, and are followed by attractive fuzzy seed pods. After seeds drop out of its large, hairy pods, Celandine Poppy will go dormant. Seedlings will readily emerge everywhere if fresh seed is scattered on the soil surface. There is also a European species known as Celandine Poppy that is somewhat weedy and invasive. The two can be differentiated by their seed pods: the European has smooth pods. . North American native plant.
