Pinefield Garden Club
Inaugurated in 1960 --- Federated in 1961
The object of our club is to stimulate interest in horticulture and to expand our knowledge of gardening for the benefit of our community.
April Garden - Virginia Sweetspire
With the ground still soft, April is a great time to pull out invasive plants such as Japanese barberry (Berberis thunbergii), Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica), and burning bush (Euonymus alatus). Replace these with American natives such as bunchberry (Cornus Canadensis), a flowering ground cover with fall berries; native honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens); and Virginia sweetspire (Itea spp., pictured at right), a spring bloomer with fabulous fall color that lasts longer than burning bush.
Virginia Sweetspire is in splendid color
