One of our favorite fairy garden plants has to be the native bog buttons. Whitehead bog buttons can be found growing in low, moist ditches and pinelands from Virginia south to Texas This collection comes from Marion County Georgia, where it's never been officially documented...oops. In the garden, the tiny flattened tufts of lily-looking foliage are topped in summer with 4-5" tall, alien-like, narrow antennae, each ending in a little greyish-white fuzz ball (flower). Moist soils and good sun are required for cultivation, although Lachnocaulon anceps adapts very well to container culture. Whitehead bog buttons is a real cutie that kids and fairies, both young and old will enjoy!
