Pollinator garden favorite black eyed Susan

Black eyed Susan, Rudbeckia fulgida, is an excellent native pollinator and butterfly garden plant.

If you want to support pollinators, come find my table at the Sustainable Sharon Coalition’s Green Day on May 7th from 12-4 on High Street, Sharon Center, between the Sharon Public Library & Congregational Church.  I’ll be selling perennials with high horticulture and pollinator value, and Rudbeckia fulgida v fulgida will be the star of the show.
(In case of inclement weather, the event will be held inside the Congregational Church Parish Hall.)

In My Horticultural Opinion (IMHO): Kill Your Bradford Pears

I agree with North Carolina Extension Master Gardener Linda G. Brandon about the environmental and economic damage caused by beautiful, fragile Bradford pears.  She’s in North Carolina, but the issues she addresses are true in New England, too.  See the link to her report just below these photos:

Bradford pear trees in bloom along a street

Bradford pear trees are beautiful in spring, but only for the eyes. They are harmful to the environment and our economy.

Bradford pear burst apart

Bradford pears are unstable and tend to burst apart due to their weak branching structure.
