Summer 2019 Gardens Update for Seabourne Nature Park

The summer garden is gaining height every week. Many spring wildflowers are finished blooming and setting seed. Summer stars like red-flowered Texas Hibiscus, Gallardia, Partridge Pea, and Rudbeckia texana are blooming, Prairie Blazing Star/Liatris pychostachya is getting taller, and Passion Vine and Yellow Indigo are producing fruit/seed.  Many plants are labeled, informative signage is out and brochures are stocked. The picnic tables and arbors offer a quiet place to contemplate the summer prairie garden. Thank you to all of the volunteers who put in many hours monthly for upkeep!
