Build A Better World – Give Plants, Give Time

GARDENERS, CAN YOU SHARE? Our rain garden is also 10 years old and needs revitalizing. Can you share some of your native plants for our efforts? We are looking for specific plants for the rain garden that attract pollinators - bees, butterflies, hummingbirds. Specifically we need: Bee Balm, Milkweed, Joe Pye Weed, Marsh Marigold, Purple Coneflower, Blazing Star, and Mullein. We will accept any of the many other plants that attract pollinators. Our rain garden is full sun and has periods of being quite dry and then gets lots of rainwater off our roof and parking. We can provide pots and need your donations identified with plant markers. Thank You for your continued generosity.
