Although the wood sign has been there for ten years, this fall we have redesigned this prominect corner that has prime visibility from vehicles stopped at the intersection of McCallum and W. Ellet Streets.
With some sun and lots of bright light, the site should support this rock garden featuring schist boulders which tie back to the stone wall we installed in 2014 and which give a settled character unique to our Wissahickon neighborhood.
We also carved out a visual, but not literal pathway into the garden. We've expanded the drift of creeping Phlox, inviting the early May carpet of vivid purple to spill down into the rock garden.
We look forward to watch as the collection of sedums and sempervivums as well as the diminutive perennial varieties we have just installed will add sparkle and richness for pedestrians while the local stone anchors our gardens at Ned Wolf Park.
