Learn About Our Team
Slender Mountainmint (Pycnanthemum tenuifolium) is almost certainly the most popular plant in our propagation gardens. This drought and water-tolerant wildflower can be used for teas or extract for desserts or cocktails if you’re into that sort of thing! We cannot recommend this plant enough. Go to the seedbank tab right now to see how you can get seeds or plant plugs!
Pawnee Nation Planting
Nearly 300 Oklahoma wildflowers including Swamp Milkweed (A. incarnata) for those wet areas, Foxglove Beardtongue (P. digitalis), Sawtooth Sunflower (H. grosseserratus), Buttonbush (C. occidentalis), Beebalm (M. fistulosa), and others were planted in TAP’s first large planting of the year! Across the street from the Pawnee Health Center and next to an actively used walking trail, this large field offers an excellent opportunity for restoration with high visibility. We look forward to returning to this site and getting more plants in the ground!
