I planted the uncommon native plant Sophora tomentosa and hope in time to come, there will be lots of seeds to collect for germination.
In addition, I planted out the uncommon Asclepias fruticosa around the pond. This is a plant where its bulbous air-filled fruit capsule is used in plant decoration. These plants looked quite sickly and I hope planting them out in the ground would give them a better chance of growing well. I just love the unusual white flowers but unfortunately they are non-fragrant.
Across the pond can also be found clumps of Echinodorus and Nelumbo nucifera (common name: Lotus) to add to the variety of aquatic plants.
