    I live in Waukesha Wi. I have a corner property that has about a 7′ hill border, that runs about 60′ x 120′. The sides face the north and west with no shade. My house is an old Victorian, slate blue in color. The hill is unmanageble right now. I’m thinking wild flowers might be the answer. Can you suggest some combination that would supply somewhat of a continuous bloom. Also please respond with pricing.

    About 2 weeks ago, we visited Door County. On the trip back west to SD, I noticed a 4 to 6 inch tall blue or lavender colored flower abundantly growing in tough conditions along the highway shoulders. What is that and are there seeds available to purchase? Where can I buy if available?

    Thanks

      Hi Todd, Might that be chicory? We see a lot of it here in Wisconsin, especially along road sides. (The dried root, ground into powder, apparently was a poor man’s coffee substitute and still gets added to New Orleans style coffee.) I need to post a photo of it here…

    I need help identifying a wildflower growing on the west bank of a steep hill off the St. Croix River in Wisconsin. Unopened the flower is arranged in white/purple/blue droplets in a cluster off a stem. On some of the plants the stalk is brown part way up, and others green. The leaves vary in shape, but some look like a toothed oak leaf. The height is 12-36 inches.
