There is an ever-growing demand to use medicinal plants in our landscape design. This could be brought on by the overuse of prescription medications or perhaps it is just a desire to return to more holistic practices as we are faced with growing challenges in the world.  Let’s take a look at some of the available plants that intrinsically hold both medicinal and aesthetic values.  Each of the plants below have many healing benefits and an entire blog could be written for each.

  • Butterfly-weed


  • Joe-Pye Weed
  • Prairie smoke
  • Solomon’s seal
  • Swamp milkweed
  • Wild Bergamot (Monarda)


  • Violet
