What's Blooming in the Rain Garden?
The plants in the Eastside Park rain garden are thriving! In May, City of Washington employees prepared the top part of the garden for planting, and re-set the repaired educational sign. Employees from the city of Washington Stormwater Dept. and the SWCD worked through light rain and steamy heat to give the rain garden a fresh layer of mulch, and plant a variety of new native plants to fill in some blank areas.The rain garden is alive with color - plants currently blooming (as of June 28) include: Bergamot (Bee Balm), Culver's Root, Black-Eyed Susan, Marsh Milkweed, and Sage.
