Earlier this year, Beech Hollow Wildflower Farms kindly donated wildflower seeds and plants to the course. They are starting to bloom, these photos were taken this week:
- Native bee on a Large Flowered Coreopsis above trail on #7
- 4x pics of Purple Coneflower on trail at #7. I planted 2 mature plants above the trail at eye level, but there are 4-5 already blooming and numerous other seedlings with large leaves below the trail that are most likely seeds I scattered last year. One pic of plant sprouting up through bad infestation of Japanese hops, love to see that.
- Last one is a Phlox species (Phlox glaberrima or panniculata?) that is naturally occurring near the tee for #8 in a sea of invasive stilt grass. There are a few really cool populations of wild ginger, bellwort, solomon’s seal, etc. on that trail down from the fields between 7/8. Might try to move some that are in/near the trail to less traveled areas in the fall.
