Bogs are one of the most fascinating, beautiful, and fragile habitats in our coastal plains. Start with an overview of the unique qualities of bogs and the species that inhabit them, including native orchids, pitcher plants, sundews, and even cranberries. Then tour Mt. Cuba Center’s bog garden and observe the special adaptations plants have evolved to survive this distinctive habitat. Finally, construct your own colorful and captivating bog garden in a container. Learn how to create the conditions necessary for growing these exceptional plants and proper long-term maintenance techniques. With a little effort, you can have a container garden bursting with beauty and a touch of drama.
