Commons Plants: Landscaping with PA Natives

For those of you who were a little (or a lot) dismayed to see the felling of many of Marywood’s Arboretum giants–here’s a lovely-looking Pinterest board we stumbled upon, curated by LC Architect Theresa Thomas, that shows some beautiful picks for Learning Commons flora. While we can’t say if the squirrels will agree, we think they will be worthwhile residents of the newfound canopy space.

From the looks of it, the Learning Commons will be landscaped with a variety of native trees, perennials and groundcover plants. Serviceberry trees and dogwoods are particularly attractive for their spring flowers and food for birds and Red Osier Dogwood is spectacular poking up from the snow in winter.

See more on Pinterest!

Can’t wait to see these beauties growing outside the Learning Commons windows!
