Plant Life
Native Plants According To David

A plant survey conducted in 2003 lists over 150 species of flower, shrub or tree, that are native to our area. Four species are listed as rare by the New York Natural Heritage Program. Two species, Common Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) and Smartweed Dodder

(Cuscuta polygonorum) were recorded in a 1996 survey, but significant new stands were found. The same individual Butternut (Juglans cinerea) was observed again. The fourth, Field Dodder (Cuscuta pentagona) is new to Hoffman Center. As a friend of Hoffman Center, David has spent many hours in the field, documenting the plants you will see when you visit.
