Plants and Pollinators at the Rose Arc Pool

While restoration of the Cranford Rose Garden continues, you would do well to turn your gaze upon the Rose Arc Pool. Curator Sarah Owens has incorporated a number of perennials and annuals among the roses around the fountain. These not only make for an ongoing beautiful display of blooms but also serve to attract beneficial insects and bird pollinators, bolstering the resilience of the roses and mitigating the pitfalls of a monoculture.

Below are some photos of the current colors and shapes in bloom at the Rose Arc Pool. If you happen by, make sure to take a closer look at all the butterflies, bumble bees, wasps, and other critters that are also paying a visit to the plants.
