Happy Mystery Monday! What insect did we find? They are better known for their larval stage, in which they have a unique way of catching their prey.
Last week, we asked you about the blackhaw viburnum (Viburnum prunifolium). This stunning native shrub offers abundant blooms in April and May, interesting foliage, and fall fruit for the birds. It thrives in sun to part shade and moist, well-drained soils. The flowers attract a variety of pollinators and the plant is a host for the spring azure butterfly, as well as many others.
