Divided we Stand (plants, not people)

Call for Division! Native Plant Divisions for our Biodiversity Corner

This fall, Green Thumbs is setting roots in Regent Park. In October, we will run our BiodiverCity Program in a new greenhouse and a new green space. With the help of Grade 6 students, we want to improve the biodiversity in the park by creating the Biodiversity Corner. We also need your help to transform the turf into a native plant garden. If you have native plants in your garden and feel like sharing, bring us some of your divisions! We are looking for seven specific species:

Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa)


monarda

New England Aster (Symphyotricum novae-angliae)


Aster

Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa)


butterfly weed

Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea)

Virginia Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum virginianum)


mountain mint

Black –eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta)

Black-eyed Susan has yellow petals, large coarse leaves, and sturdy stems.

Orange Daylily (Hemerocalis fulva)

If you have divisions of any of these species to donate, please label them, and bring them to Winchester School-Community Garden at the corner of Winchester St. and Rose Ave., Cabbagetown, or contact us at programs (at) kidsgrowing.ca. Please do not donate other varieties without contacting us first!

Thank you very much for your generosity and your contribution to our Biodiversity Corner!
