Our native garden was planted in 2004 as a memorial for local artist Florence Drosd, with one of her cast aluminum sculptures displayed at the end of one of the winding paths. Nearby plantings of tropical milkweed (Asclepias curassavica) and firebush (Hamelia patens) provide food for butterflies, hummingbirds, and other animals. Other plantings include Lignum-vitae (Guaiacum sanctum), and live oak (Quercus virginiana), with epiphytic plants growing amongst the branches such as tillandsia, orchids, and cacti.
