Centennial Grove Native Plantings

Centennial Grove Native Plantings

The Edmond Parks Foundation and the City of Edmond partnered with The Tree Bank Foundation to fund the development of native plantings at the established Centennial Grove project along the exit ramp of I-35 and Covell Road in Edmond. Our vision-in-progress is for this bare hillside and surrounding area to transition over the years to a spectacular sustainable wildflower and native grass demonstration planting “traffic stopper”, and at the same time to control erosion at the Grove.

The partners hired Total Environment, Inc. to design and install the native plantings. The design provides plant varieties selected for adaptability to that specific area, for continued color, and for low maintenance care.

Wildflowers planted include Rudbeckia, Plains and Lanceleaf Coreopsis, Penstemon, Cosmos, Primrose, Horsemint, Yarrow, Liatris, Purple Prairie Clover, Drummond Phlox, Coneflower, Poppies, Gaillardia, Indian Paintbrush and more.
