A strong spring wildflower bloom is expected at Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge, beginning in April. The refuge’s Bayscape Garden contains more than 40 species of native wildflowers including goldenrod (solidago), columbine, rudbeckia, coreopsis, phlox and gaillardia.
The garden, which is maintained by volunteers, attracts butterflies, moths, birds, and other wildlife. Bayscape Garden is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to sunset. A new booklet on native wildflowers that are suitable for home gardens is available at the refuge.
