Plants & Plant Habitat

The marshy wetlands, creek bogs & banks, rocky ledges, acid meadows, rich bottomland, field hedges and woodland floors offer diverse habitat for countless species of plants, a pharmacopoeia of roots and leaves, flowers and bark, the mainstays of traditional medicine, once providing teas and tinctures, soothing oils and nourishment. The following lists just a few of the plants who flourish on Dionondehowa Sanctuary. Some are native, some introduced and some have migrated here.
