Trustees' is working hard to save open space across the Commonwealth however vital habitat across the state has already been lost to urban sprawl. This collection features two charming native plants that are endangered in the wild but fortunately grow quite well in the home landscape. Seed has been responsibly sourced to bring you this duo. This collection is ideal for the home gardener that wants to help preserve our native flora. Prickly Pear Cactus is indeed native to coastal Massachusetts though uncommon due to development and sprawl while Tennessee coneflower is endemic to Tennessee and while removed from the Federal endangered species list it does remain an uncommon beauty. This kit features two plants, each in their own quart pot.
