Area Pb: Pond Perennials

The pond has already been partially planted. These plants consist of the following: Liatris spectalis | Blazing Star Monarda didyma | Beebalm Asclepias tuberosa | Butterfly Weed Echinacea purpurea | Purple Coneflower Schizachyrium scoparium | Little Bluestem Rudbeckia | Black Eyed Susan Solidago rigida | Goldenrod

Once these perennials are established, the site can be reevaluated to see if more plants are needed. The existed perennials might need to transplanted in order to add the appropriate additional plants. Here is a list of other perennials that can compliment the existing palette: Carex buchananii (Leatherleaf Sedge), Onoclea sensibilis (Sensitive Fern), Baptisia australis (Blue False Indigo), Coreopsis lanceolata (Lanceleaf Coreopsis), and Sporobolus Heterolepis (Prairie Dropseed).

Phase 1 Phase 1: Cornus racemosa (6) Cornus seriecea (4) Mahonia aquilfolium (16) Fothergilla gardenii (14) Ilex vertcillata (21) Comptonia peregrina* (5) Vaccinium angustifolium* (8) Physocarpus opulifolius (1) Estimated Plant Cost: $2200 Notes: Throughout the design Vaccinium and Comptonia can be substitute for any of the perennials included in the design. This will reduce the overall cost. However these substitutes will sacrifice additional benefits for the birds.

Salvia ‘Evaline’ (10) Echinacea ‘Katie Saul’ (9) Coreopsis ‘Cosmic Evolution (12) Liriope ‘Big Blue’ (5) Nepeta ‘Walker’s Low’ (21) Echinops ritro (4) Aster Alma Potschke (3) Penstomon ‘Husker Red’ (4) Estimated Plant Cost: $450 Notes: Costs are based on one gallon containers. One option could be to use wholesale landscape plugs (typical at 38 count tray) and order one tray per perennial listed, the cost would be $650 for over 300 plugs compared to $450 for 54 one gallon container. ***Plugs must be planted in the spring. ****

Estimated Mulch & Topsoil Cost: $ 350

Total: $3000
