New Pollinator Park in Stillwater

Self heal, BUMBLEBEE at the pollinator park

NATIVE FLOWER GARDEN & BEE LAWN:  May, 2016: Pollinator Friendly volunteers, Stillwater Water Board and Gardenside completed Phase I of the Pollinator Park by first removing the turf.

Bee lawn seeded with Self Heal (Prunella vulgaris) 3.6 oz. (7.5 Tbs)/1000 sf, White Dutch Clover (Trifolium repens) 3.2 oz. (7 Tbs)/1000 sf. After the first snow fall Nov. 2016, we overseeded the clover bee lawn with a seed mix of creeping fescues and hard fescues for diversity and resilience in the lawn. May 6, 2017 additional clover and fescue was seeded. 

Thanks to the generous support of the Saint Paul Garden Club and Patagonia, the flower garden is abound with pollinators: Wild Bergamot, Rough Blazingstar, Yellow Headed Coneflower, Joe-Pye Weed, Compass Plant, Oxe-eye, New England Aster, Fragrant Hyssop, Heartleaf Golden Alexander, Meadowrue, Butterfly Weed, Creeping Sedum.
