A Special Tree in the Garden

Ornaments were provided by members for the Hernando Chapter, Florida Native Plant Society entry for the Holiday in the Gardens event at the Nature Coast Botanical Garden. We decorated a youpon holly, in fruit, next to path. Quite a few compliments.

On the same day, December 7, Jason came by with buckets of Garberia &  Liatris seeds collected this fall to plant in our sandhill.

Right: Jason LaRoche, the 2013 Hernando Chapter Volunteer of the year, is at it again, donating his time and effort to keep adding to our sandhill demonstration area at the Nature Coast Botanical Garden. The Liatris and Garberia seeds will add to the fall display in 2014.
