Dance of the Wood Betony (Pedicularis), a lovely parasitic native

Swirling beauty! This semi parasitic native of our higher quality prairies is quite a sight in spring.   Easily spotted when little else is in bloom in the prairie or oak savanna.

  • Not a plant easily obtained. Not recommended for most gardens – just a fun plant worth knowing and looking for while hiking.
  • Always buy native species (especially rarer types) from known and reputable growers. Never dig plants (such as betony), as they will most likely drop dead upon arrival to your gardens!
  • Inquire for plant lists and growers whom are local.
  • Designer Ed Max is also cert naturalist plus cert arborist, and designs many gardens , woodlands, and other properties (both traditional and naturalistic) and meshes native with non-native species for wonderful and varied garden and landscape!
