Mother Nature, Pollinator Garden

Date
2016

This pollinator garden was planted to create calm space between our parking area and Harry Bertoia’s magnificent Free Interpretation of Plant Forms. A range of native species that have coexisted in our ecosystem for centuries was specifically selected, including mountain mint (Pycnanthemum muticum), viburnum (Viburnum dentatum), goldenrod (Solidago canadensis), and sweetshrub (Calycanthus floridus). Through the summer, different parts of the garden come into bloom, providing food for birds and insects. Bertoia’s great sculpture is also a fountain, and birds understand that it is a giant birdbath. After enjoying the water, they zip over to the pollinator garden for a meal. We hope the beauty of the garden inspires you to plant these species, too.
