Perspective | How to turn the wet, soggy areas of a garden from a problem to an asset

Got a wet area of your yard? Consider the tips in this article...Sweet Bay Magnolia is a great option for wet areas (pictured below) whose flowers smell amazing. It is also a native plant of our region and is a host plant of the Virginia State insect, the beautiful Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly!

A huge thank you to Lexi Howard, a Heritage High School senior, and her student volunteers! Lexi organizied and lead a planting of native Virginia Bluebells (Mertensia virginica) and milkweed at Confluence Park as part of her "Project Pollinate" efforts in our Youth Conservation Leadership Institute program! Bluebells are an early spring nectar source for bees and other pollinators, and milkweed is not only the host plant for the Monarch butterfly, but also supports a huge variety of pollinators in the summer.
