Home > Plants Needed – May 2021

REAL will be planting two beds of pollinator friendly plants at the Smiths Falls Town Square in late June.  A detailed plan has been drawn up by Lashley and Associates, and we are busy trying to source the various species required.  Some are hard to find, and some are hard to find in the necessary quantities and sizes.  A few others might be in home gardens, and we are hoping to reduce costs somewhat by appealing for plant donations.  We will be making substitutions only if necessary!  Here is what we are missing:
Autumn Fire Sedum  (Sedum spectabile “autumn fire”)
Turtlehead (Chelone glabra/Chelone obliqua)
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium “Terracotta”)
Spotted Deadnettle ( Lamium maculatum  White Nancy)
Hoary Vervain (Verbena stricta)
Blazing Star (Liatris spicata)
Painted daisy  (Tanacetum coccineum “Robinsons pink”)
White trillium (Trillium grandiflorum)

We also would like for our native garden:

Canada Anemone  (Anemone canadensis)
Jacobs Ladder (Polemonium reptans)

If you have any of the above to donate, or if you notice them in a garden centre, please contact Donna at andisondj@gmail.com or (613) 283-2254.  Thanks for your help!
