PLANTS

 

 

Groups of Magna Vista Warrior Tech students working with their teacher, Joel Preston Bunn, did the research to create the following plant descriptions for some significant native plants that support pollinator life. Students' descriptions have gently edited.

The Martinsville Garden and Study Clubs have added descriptions as more plants have been added.
