Two New Plantings: Coreopsis + Mountain Mint

28 Jul

I stopped by Gowanus Nursery on Saturday and picked up two new plants: Coreopsis (Coreopsis verticillata) a pretty flowering plant known as tickseed, and mountain mint (Pycanthemum).  I need to confirm the specifics on each, but generally, they are pollinator-friendly and should make nice additions to our butterfly garden. I’ve been meaning to get mountain mint since Benji’s school was given some by the ButterflyProjectNYC; the coreopsis was purely an impulse buy–love those cheerful little yellow buds!  Hope you do too, and that they do well here.  -Denise
