Ironweed, in bloom this week at the Sarah Duke Gardens Blomquist Garden and along roadsides and overgrown right of ways all over Durham County.
There is a new feature in Sarah Duke Garden’s Blomquist Garden for Native Plants. It is a small “Wildlife Garden.” I’ve been watching the work on it for months now. It is very close to the main entrance of the Blomquist Garden (off the perennial alee). Check out the website for a useful plant list. Now is a good time to get ideas for fall planting.
