Peone Prairie

A windswept prairie broken occasionally by shallow draws and low knolls. During the dry summer months, the land is an expanse of yellow grass except where the prairie has been put under cultivation. But in the spring the tufted, blue-green bunchgrass is sprinkled with golden sunflowers and deep blue lupine. Clusters of low-growing sand verbena, which flowers in lovely variegated colors, and clumps of gracefully swaying and fragrant serviceberry and wild cherry.
