Jim Carnes and his helper are busy planting 47 “Fire Power Nandina” bushes. The green leaves shift to a brilliant red color as summer shifts to fall and maintains this hue throughout the winter months. The Nandina will grow in direct or partial sunlight but will be noticeably brighter and lush with the greater amount of sun. These were chosen because they are hardy and disease resistant. The bush needs minimal care, adding to its value as both a landscape element and decorative plant. Also, variegated Liriope (grass-like leaves with cream-yellow edges and purple-blue flowers) was planted which will bloom all summer. Straw was added to cover the ground around the plants. In the background is the pavilion and beyond the sidewalk leads to the parking area. From the pavilion the walkway go to the fountain, then continues to the Walls of Honor. Plan to visit the park soon and mark your calendar for the May 23rd Memorial Day Program.
