Selections Plants

Each year, Mt. Cuba Center chooses three plants to share with our students and guests at select events in the spring, summer, and fall. Using native plants is one of the best ways to support wildlife and ecosystem health. We hope that you will use this plant to add beauty and ecological value to a place that is meaningful in your life.

Show off and share! We are currently evaluating the Mt. Cuba Center Selections program. You can help. When you add this Mt. Cuba Center Selection plant to your garden, we encourage you to take a photo of it and post it to social media using the hashtag #idignatives.

Your choices matter. We can steward the earth and effect positive change through the choices we make at home and in our communities, beginning with our yards, containers, and balconies. Congratulations on taking this step to improve your local environment!
