Allison and Rodney Pearson donated three Elderberry (Sambucus nigra ssp. canadensis) plants and five American Beautyberries (Callicarpa americana). All were planted this past Saturday on March 7, 2020..
The Elderberries were placed on the edge of the Pollinator Garden area behind the bench, to a provide a border for that area. The elderberries are a favorite of birds and is a nectar source.
The American Beautyberries were placed at the top of the trail steps behind the Roadside Pollinator Garden. The Beautyberry is a great food source for birds in the Winter and is a nectar source. Beautyberry requires little water and is a great addition to the area above the steps.
