Growing wild and native species of herbaceous perennials

The plant nursery of Schlocker-Stiftung in the EVIM facility for the disabled in Hattersheim already in the second year of funding offers a wide range of regional and wild species of herbaceous perennials – to enhance the beauty of your own natural garden.  

KfW Stiftung supports the cultivation of native and wild herbaceous perennials in the plant nursery of Schlocker-Stiftung in the EVIM facility for the disabled in Hattersheim.  

The nursery currently cultivates about 50 species. Wild herbaceous perennials are plants that exist naturally in the region. Although they are mostly perennial plants which have adapted to the climatic conditions, they are nevertheless often endangered. Many native and wild species of herbaceous perennials are not only wild beauties that can smarten up your garden, but are also very useful plants for bees, bumblebees and butterflies – or are even suitable for your salad.   

The Schlocker-nursery has divided its large range of plants into three categories to help you make the right choice:  

Wild & beautiful
refers to plants that simply look great, either because of their flowers, their shape or their ornamental leaves, and includes different types of bluebells, wild carnations and mallows.  

Wild & useful
points out those plants that are particularly bee-friendly or attract butterflies or birds.  

Wild & tasty
indicates all edible wild herbs, such as dandelion or sorrel. They are the perfect ingredients for a wild herb salad or a green smoothie.
