The community wildflower garden at Hawk Cliff Woods is planted with all native perennial plants that are beautiful and hardy choices for landscaping. The garden will serve as a demonstration site for native plant gardening as well as a source of seeds for interested community members who want to grow native plants for their own gardens.
This spring we have big plans for the garden including accessibility upgrades, adding informational signage, and holding gardening events and workshops. Stay tuned for more info on these developments!
Why native plants?
Native plants provide food and habitat for birds, insects, and other creatures while requiring less care in terms of watering, pesticides, and fertilizers, than exotic landscaping plants. Its a win-win for nature and gardeners alike.
