Three years ago, Native Landscape Solutions, Inc. installed many native plants in stormwater basins and seeded various native seed mixes at the new Mercy Virtual Care facility in Chesterfield. It is a beautiful modern building within a beautiful natural setting. As we all know, native plants take a good three years or more to really get established. And now, just starting the third year, Mercy’s native plants are really showing off. Much of their campus is alive with blooming Penstemon, Monarda, pale purple coneflowers, milkweed, black-eyed susans, rattlesnale master, Coreopsis and many others. It is very gratifying to see the fruits of our labor (we also provide knowledgeable stewardship of the site) as there are very few qualified native plant contractors who can handle this work. Enjoy the pictures!, especially the milkweed with the tiny Monarch caterpillar.
