Subject: RE: Butterfly Garden - Plants

If it is this plant: Nigella damascene, then we'd rather not have it. We fight pretty hard as much as possible to stick to native plants in the bioretentions when possible, primarily because they are connected to the streams (via the overflow inlets) so we don't want to spread non-native plants out to the streams, if possible. If that is not the plant, let's figure out what you have and see if it is a native.

Susan, Afie was asking about fall flowering plants that could work in the wet swale and I suggested the following:

Aster novae-angliae 'Purple Dome'

New England aster

Solidagograminifolia

Grass-leaved goldenrod

We can consider other natives for spring--luckily the large clumps of Iris will flower then, but if more is desired we can work with Laura to grow a few things or purchase a few other plants.

And no worries, Susan, there will be one more workday! ;)
