Today the sun washed over Stuy Cove Park, warming the chilled spring air. It wasn’t an unusual day, but it was one of our favorites, as some of our best volunteers from the Stuyvesant Cove Park Association made even more progress in helping us continue to restore the plants and beds of Stuy Cove.
This is the season where weeds start to appear, and in addition to planing new greenery, our volunteers also sought out weeds to remove them from our native-plant beds. Some of the new plants were Eupatorium coelestinum, Eragrostis spectabilis, Rudbekia fulgida, and Heliopsis helianthoides. Recognize any of them?
It’s the Mist Flower, Purple Lovegrass, Black-eye Susan, and the Oxeye Sunflower. Next time you come to Stuy Cove Park, you can find them!
