While cherry trees and eastern red buds are putting on a floral show, lower on the ground and upon closer inspection, Carex pensylvanica, commonly called Pennsylvania sedge or oak sedge can also be seen in bloom. A native groundcover for part and full shade, oak sedge is a versatile plant that performs many ecological services and forms a soft, delicate, arching, semi-evergreen clump of leaves. Flowering oak sedge can now be spotted at the LeFrak Center at Lakeside. Photo by Prospect Park Alliance Horticultural Director Ronen Gamil #prospectpark #flowerfridays

Today’s #TBT features @Prospect_Park’s tallest residents. Did you know? During the Park’s initial construction, gigantic trees were transplanted to reforest Prospect Park. Just the roots of these trees could weigh 15 tons, so Park engineer John Culyer designed horse-drawn “tree-moving machines” to get these massive plants into their places.
