What's in the name? The Blazing Prairie Star is a rare perennial plant found in the prairies of Kane County. This plant is unique. It is one of the only plants on earth that blossoms from the top down instead of from the bottom up. Blazing Prairie Stars are unique, rare, special, and beautiful as they blossom.
Our sensory and butterfly garden is named "Meara's Garden" in loving memory of a special little girl and friend.
