Blooms at Kentuck Knob

Our Landscaping and Grounds Director Laura Tebbitt has been keeping a blooming list each week for Kentuck Knob. This is no easy feat as the seventy-nine acres is home to thousands of native species of flora.

In the photo is a patch of Houstonia caerulea, or the more common bluets. A few of the other blooms gracing us on the mountain within the last few weeks are:

Dwarf Crested Iris (Iris cristata)

Stonecrop (Sedum glaucophyllum)

Blue Woodland Phlox (Phlox divaricata)

Candytuft (Iberis sempervirens)

English Bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta)

Doghobble (Leucothoe fontanesiana)

Pinxterbloom Azalia (Rhododendron nudiflorum)

Solomon’s Seal (Polygonatum biflorum)

Podophyllum peltatum (Rhododendron nudiflorum)
