The Memorial Garden

WELCOME!

Our home is the beautiful and historic Village of Pinehurst, located in the Sandhills of North Carolina. Known as the home of American golf and the longleaf pine ecosystem, its temperate climate makes gardening a popular activity.

Summer in the Garden

Hummingbirds are voracious feeders, especially when they are getting ready for the long trek to their winter grounds. Make sure your feeders are available and change the solution frequently during the hot weather.

Plant of the Month

           Purple passion vine
The purple passion vine is an interesting plant with an intriguing-looking flower. Bees love them and can actually get drunk on their nectar. Hummers like them as well. If you want to grow one it is best to keep it in a container because it can be invasive.

Question of the Month

Can You Identify This Interesting Critter?
Actually, it’s not so interesting. The spotted lanternfly is an invasive species that is doing a number on  some agricultural crops and trees. Click here for more information.
