Family - Rosaceae Over the Years - Queen of the Prairie deserves such a regal name; their pink plumes are truly the envy of the prairie. I discovered this the hard way, that this royal gem requires moisture to look her best. As an experiment, a mature plant was planted in one of our gardens that is dry and receives almost a full day’s worth of sun. Since she was struggling, I transplanted her into a more suitable location.
