Native American plants

I spent an enjoyable morning at the NC Natural Science Museum, but that's a topic for longer post. Next to it was the NC History Museum, which I haven't visited yet, but was attracted to by their interesting outdoor planting beds.


In addition to a traditional three sisters planting in some front beds, several side beds were devoted to 'Native American' plants. These were nicely done, and included North American stalwarts like pokeweed, in addition to adopted European plants brought by colonists.

  1. What a great blog! I stumbled upon you while looking for my most favorite South Carolina blog on Blotanical. Well, that's it. You'll get my vote.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
