Nature Coast Botanical Garden Blooms with our Efforts

The Sandhill plants that we put in last fall are thriving and putting on a great show, with big clumps of scrub mint (calamintha sp., above) and Lopsided Indian Grass in bloom. The Garberia is in bud!

We had many visitors during the Scarecrows in the garden event on October 12. Jason planted the Sandhill sign created by Heather, and did a great job of outreach during the event.

Heather designed a native plant garden girl, placed appropriately in the wildflower area. Visitors to the gardens can vote for their favorite scarecrow through mid-November.

We will have another workday on November 9 to further our efforts and add more plants!  For information, please write and be sure to visit the garden's website at:

Come see the beauty of Florida's native mints!
