ROSS LAKE JOURNAL: EARLY JULY
We are going native with our garden at Ross Lake Park. Local pollinators, such as butterflies, bees and birds are all adapted to native New Jersey plants. Their flowers are as varied as the pollinators that visit. This time of year brings scarlet bee balm, purple coneflowers, and moonbeam tickseed. Blazing stars send up flower covered spikes and the drooping white flowers of the sweet pepperbush attract with their sweet fragrance.
