Swamp sunflower (Helianthus angustifolius), a fall bloomer found in wet prairies, would have been encountered by early settlers and makes good bog/pond plants for present day gardens. Leave the seedheads on the plant, for they provide food to birds in winter. Goldfinches are especially fond of swamp sunflower seeds.

Leaf Litter Sponsor – $100

      
1 ticket to Wildscapes Workshop**
Acknowledgment on NPSOT-H website, in Workshop packet, in NPSOT-H newsletter
Leaf litter is an important part of the wildscape garden! Fireflies pupate in leaf litter. Leaf litter also benefits several moths. Finally, leaf litter eventually turns into rich composted soil.
