Native Plant Garden
This is the garden immediatley after planting on May 27, 2014. The two dwarf pines and the birch tree had been planted the previous fall. Clockwise from the big rock: Pearly everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacea), Anemone canadensis, Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), Aquilegia canadensis, Wild geranium (geranium maculatum). Unfortunately, most of these flowers are early bloomers, so for the summer months there's not much colour.
