The new Mt. Cuba Center formal garden showcasing natives was featured here in the July 1 edition. Most recently it’s also been featured in the Journal of the American Public Gardens Association.
“The new South Garden reflects Mt. Cuba Center’s mission—to inspire an appreciation for native plants and a dedication to conserve the habitats that sustain them,” writes Mt. Cuba’s Katie Bohri. “The newly redesigned garden area features a formal display of plants that provides many ecological benefits to pollinators and birds. Moreover, both the plant palette and intimate scale can easily translate to a home landscape. These plants have transformed what was formally a quiet garden area into one humming—and buzzing and singing—with wildlife.” Before the native plant redesign, the space was for passing through only — now it’s a destination.
