This Week in the Garden

Moving towards the end of September, Winterberry and Red Chokeberry berries have begun to turn red, a show that will last well into winter. Pollinators are still enjoying the remaining blooms from Rose Mallow, Black Eyed Susan, Royal Catchfly, Rosinweed, ‘Rozanne’ Geranium, and White Turtlehead. Volunteers from university classes and the community are working to install over 1,000 additional plants in the garden, which will help dramatically increase the number of spring blooms with native Illinois species like Virginia Bluebells, Woodland Phlox, and Shooting Star.
