It’s been a few weeks since the Wildflower Corridor was installed and the planters are fitting in right at home on 9th Street! The flowers are starting to grow thanks to all the love and care they’re getting from residents and businesses along the street.

We want to share names and pictures of the native flowers that will be growing in these planters over the next few months — see if you can identify them when you’re passing by the Corridor this summer!
