Site 4: Science Building
Like the Flagpole beds, these plantings are among the highlights of our path. While both sites have great diversity and some of the same flowers, they are not exactly the same. The Science Building beds have two notable differences: white Nicotiana and pink Echinacea. The white Nicotiana are large plants whose flowers are very long and emit a strong fragrance at night. They should attract night-flying moths. The pink coneflowers (Echinacea) are very attractive to both bees and butterflies. The Flagpole beds have white Echinacea, which do not seem to be as appealing to pollinators.
