Since 1985 the Vagary has grown quality perennials, native plants, and herbs for sale in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Twin Cities area. We sell plants from our home at plant sales and at a few special events in the Twin cities area. We also sell plants by special order, and we do some custom growing.
Thanks to everyone who made the Landscape Revival a great success!
Our next sales event is the Minneapolis Monarch Festival located near Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis on Saturday, September 12th.
In the past few years the Vagary has begun to focus on pollinator plants, especially plants that support the Monarch butterfly population that spends the summer months in Minnesota and migrates to central Mexico for the winter. While there are many plants that serve as a nectar source for Monarchs, other butterflies, and other pollinator insects, milkweeds are especially important because they are the only plant that acts as a food source for Monarch caterpillars.
Minnesota Milkweeds for Monarchs is a summary of six popular species of milkweeds native to Minnesota that we sell. It includes good information on why milkweeds are important, which species are best suited for various landscape settings, and general information on growing milkweeds.
