Native Plants

Specializing in Native Plants of the Lower Midwest

Bohn's Farm and Greenhouses strives to produce, within a managed production nursery setting, the most extensive selection of Midwest native perennials found in the lower Midwest.  Our extensive selection of ecotype species and landscape "nativars" are grown in a variety of container sizes to suit the needs of both the landscape professional and the retail merchant.  Special production emphasis in recent years includes native species required for constructing rain gardens, bioswales, and stormwater detention and retension infrastructures according to the "St.Louis County Phase II Stormwater Management Plan" and "Sustainable Practices" adopted by the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD).  

Bohn's Farm wishes to extend a sincere thank you to the Shaw Nature Reserve team for their educational assistance to expand our knowledge of native plants via their educational programs and ongoing development and management of The Whitmire Wildflower Garden

An active member since the inception of the program, Bohn's Farm also values association with the Grow Native! a native plant awareness program jointly managed by the Missori Department of Conservation and Missouri Department of Agriculture

Bohn's Farm RESPONSIBLE CODE OF CONDUCT: All native plants we offer are propagated from seeds responsibly collected or vegetative cuttings from controlled nursery-produced stock plants.  We DO NOT purchase propagated materials from plant material collected in the wild.

Tradescantia 'Charlotte's Web'

Spiderwort
Finally—a gold foliage Spiderwort that doesn’t burn in sun! Its grass-like leaves emerge in spring with a thin red margin on the edges of each leaf blade. The chartreuse foliage transitions to gold with more sun exposure. Small, three-petaled soft blue flowers cover the arching, bushy clumping habit. Like most Tradescantia of its type, flowers will open in the morning and close in the afternoon on sunny days. They may remain open on cloudy days. This easy care perennial is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for low maintenance or native perennials. It's no wonder this great performer was selected as a Proven Winner.

Tradescantia ohiensis

Spiderwort, Ohio
Showy clusters of blue or rose flowers bloom on erect stems late May to early July. Each flower opens for one day. Cut back to 6-12" in mid summer to encourage new growth and possible fall bloom.
