Other Plant Offerings
Clematis | Cactus
Clematis...The clematis we offer are hardy tested cultivars that have proven themselves to be reliable in Northeast Wisconsin.  Our offerings are for heavily rooted plants that are sent bare root (plant age is noted after each cultivar).  Clematis should be planted immediately upon arrival to insure success.  Clematis should be planted deeply, bury stems 3 to 4 inches for best results.  Deep planting insures that the crown of the plant is protected from damage that may occur at the surface and promotes better rooting.  Clematis should be planted in a location in which the soil can be kept evenly moist and cool.  These plants resent wet, or hot and dry locations.  Please note that there are many different plant habits that can be used in a variety of ways in the garden or landscape.  Shipped early May through August or available at the farm during digging season.  More Clematis cultivars are available at the farm during our summer sales season.

Cactus...Shipped bareroot.  These are easily hardy through zone 4 and have no particular soil needs, other than they do not want to be wet.  Hot sunny locations are excellent.  Shipped early May through September.  Available at the farm during our digging season.

$6.75/ Blooming Size Plants
Opuntia humifusa...A hardy cactus that grows quite well in Wisconsin and even further north!  Native to almost all states bordering the Mississippi River and east.  This cactus has the paddle shaped stems with small pokers.  Flowers are bright yellow and about 1.5" to 2" in diameter and bloom in June here in Wisconsin.  Flowering can be quite heavy and the plants are quite showy when in bloom.  After flowering, plants grow fruit that turns red as the season progresses.   Grows only to about 6", as the pads often lay flat on the ground.  In late fall the plants reduce the amount of water in their pads and become wrinkled and desiccated in appearance.  During the month of May the plants rehydrate and become plump before the onset of new growth and flowering.  No special care is needed, but they do best in full sun and a well drained area.  Ours grow on clay next to boulders in an exposed area.  This hardy cactus is perfect conversation piece that will grow well in hot dry places that other plants do not flourish.  My aunt grows it between a driveway and a rock wall.  Try it in a rock garden or along a brick patio.  We send bare root plants (these don't ever make big root systems).  We can ship throughout spring, summer and fall.
