4. Demonstration Flower Garden
Across the trail from the Vegetable Garden is the Demonstration Flower Garden, which has four raised beds, each 32 x 4 feet. The flower beds contain many seasonal and perennial flowers such as Mexican Sunflowers, Joe-Pye Weed, Yarrow, Balsam, Guara, Salvias, Firespike, Poppies, Dutchman Pipe Vines, Porcelain Vines and Plumerias (frangipani). This garden is maintained by the Wiregrass Master Gardeners.
A pitcher plant bog was added in 2021. Pitcher plants are several different carnivorous plants which have modified leaves known as pitfall traps—a prey-trapping mechanism featuring a deep cavity filled with digestive liquid. The traps of what are considered to be “true” pitcher plants are formed by specialized leaves.
