Quaking Aspen is a beautiful, useful, historically important, and truly iconic species that can be cultivated virtually anywhere. In autumn, Aspens are nothing less than stunning – gilded with brilliant golden leaves, perpetually trembling and splashing sunlight in every direction.
Red Maple is an abundant, adaptable tree, widely planted throughout North America and beyond. This species makes a beautiful, seasonally-entertaining tree for a diverse array of locations. It is highly soil-tolerant, can grow in sun or shade, and is especially well-suited for use as a street, shade, or ornamental tree.
Sometimes called Common Poppy or Field Poppy, Papaver rhoeas is an erect, single-stemmed annual, growing up to about 2 feet-tall. Rising from a bed of deeply lobed, fern-like foliage, each stem holds a single flower: 4 silky red petals, usually 2–4 inches across, which generally bloom from late spring to late summer.
There's enough seed here to plant an entire meadow full of poppies — almost 90,000 seeds in all! Scattered in an informal planting, this seed will cover about 1,400 square feet.
