This plan features a wildflower meadow of camas, nodding onion, and western columbine lining the path. The summer blooming goldenrod will really light up your landscape. Be forewarned that it can spread readily when thriving so if you want to plant a less aggressive alternative, you might try the white blooming goat's beard instead.
