"hell strip" Pollinator Garden
793 Route 52, Fishkill, NY, USA
The garden is not on the roadside. Turn into the Fishkill Recreation Center entrance. Plenty of parking at the Fishkill Recreation Center!
You are welcome to stop by anytime, any day. There will be an attendant for these 2 hours.
This is actually a "hell strip" between the sidewalk and the road to the parking lot. The Town of Fishkill allowed us to experiment with making a Pollinator Garden in 2021. They liked it so much, they asked us to expand it in 2022! We have flowers blooming from Spring to Fall with a variety of both native and non-native plants. Our Native plants include: Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta), Smooth Aster (Symphyotrichum laeve), Butterfly Weed (Acelpias tuberosa) , Yarrow (Achillea millefolium), Bee Balm (Monarda didyma), Spotted Bee Balm (Monarda punctata), Blanket Flower (Gaillardia), Calendula (Calendula officinalis), Anise Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum), Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), Blue Star (Amsonia tabernaemontana 'Blue Ice'), Thread-leaf Coreopsis (Coreopsis verticillata), and Cut-leaf Coneflower (Rudbeckia laciniata).
