The Piedmont Patch was fortunate to receive donations of native plants from two different sources in late May. Come visit the site to see the beauty and resilience of the native plants that are thriving there!

Milkweeds

Barbara Driscoll, a member of the New Hope Audubon Society and native plant enthusiast, transplanted about 20 Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) onto the dam. Read about Barbara’s scheduled education event for the Piedmont Patch here.

Donations were also received from Plant Delights Nursery: Louisiana Irises were planted in a muddy edge of the pond, and many Golden Ragworts (Packera aurea) were planted on the earthen dam.
