Abuzz and bloomin': Lincoln Parks and Recreation has planted a Pollinator Garden at Union Plaza. Now showing - pink Cosmos!  

From Lincoln Parks & Recreation Facebook page...

Have you seen Union Plaza lately? The latest addition is our third section of prairie we are calling a Pollinator Garden. This garden, near 21st and 'R' Street, is 18,000 sq. ft. It was seeded this summer and includes the current cover crop of Cosmos. Also in the mix are Black Samson, Butterfly Milkweed, Common Milkweed, Showy Milkweed, New England Aster, Rocky Mountain Bee Plant, Little Bluestem and others. The area is buzzing with bees, beetles and other insects. It will be fun to watch it evolve. Photos by M.Canney.
