Community Plantings

The community plantings in Dufferin Grove include a lot of bushes rather than trees especially elderberry which have done really well. There are also nine bark, wild roses, wild clematis, red twig, spice bush and a hazel nut which seems to produce nuts although the squirrels do not let them stay long. The choke cherry also does very well and produces lots of sucker which have to be pruned off. We've planted a few white and red cedar. Some people don't like these trees but they are native evergreens which seem to grow well in cities and we have a lot of native perennials such as Joe Pye weed, Indian cup plant and some grasses. There are also some very small trees planted as seedlings which may mature. Those include hackberry, oak and sugar maple.
