This #FlowerFriday comes to us from Prospect Park Alliance Horticultural Supervisor Ronen Gamil! Clethra alnifolia, commonly known as sweet pepperbush or summersweet is a native deciduous shrub found in moist to wet soils and a perfect garden plant. Now in bloom in multiple locations including the Litchfield Villa, Meadowport Arch, the LeFrak Center at Lakeside and the Picnic House, its sweet scent enlivens the garden with its late summer inflorescences.

Planning a Prospect Park picnic this weekend? Picnicking has been a favorite pastime for Park-goers since the founding of the Park. When Prospect Park opened in 1867, Park visitors could go to the Dairy, a shady spot to picnic, relax, and enjoy tea or fresh milk supplied by a half-dozen cows that grazed on the Long Meadow. #ProspectPark.
