Brown-eyed susan -- I have some seeds stratifying in the fridge right now. I've wanted to try that one. I'm glad to hear its root system will work for me. One thing that worries me -- wildflowers are supposed to do well on septic drainfields according to most lists, with those prairie types listed there, yet another source warns that prairie plants are not good because their roots go deep to find water and can be very tenacious and tangled.

Thank you for the warning on ninebark. I won't put it anywhere near the septic system.

I've wanted to grow serviceberry for some time now. Glad to hear it's a good one. Thanks also on the other suggestions.

It's going to be an ongoing project. I'm still not certain how much sun it will have.
