Happy Mystery Monday! What insect did we find on this Erigeron ‘Lynnhaven Carpet’ flower?
Last week, we highlighted the unique flowers of the sweet gum tree! Liquidambar styraciflua is a fast growing native tree with beautiful burgundy fall foliage. Known for its spiky seed balls, sweet gum is a great food source for wildlife and is the host plant for the luna moth! It also tolerates clay soils and can grow near black walnuts, despite the juglone compound.
