Hi everyone -
Could you please take a minute to comment on this if you have any opinions? If you could reply to Merrylyn and to me, that would be helpful.

Merrylyn Sawyer called this morning with a question about native plants for buffer strips in the Wayne region (Androscoggin Lake area, Kennebec and Androscoggin Counties). She is planning to buy native plants at Pierson's in Biddeford and have them for sale at the Great Wayne Fair in August.  This will be part of the Androscoggin Lake Improvement Corporation's (ALIC) educational display.

This is the list of plants that we thought would be suitable for our area.

Iris versicolor
Lobelia cardinalis
Rosa palustris
Chamaedaphne cayculata
Ilex verticillata
Rhodora canadense
Sambucus canadensis
Vaccinium corymbosum
Viburnum dentatum

Theresa -

Thank you for your time today.  Below is a list of the plants we discussed.  I need to know if it is a bad idea to introduce any of these to the shores of Lake Androscoggin.  We plan to sell these plants at the Great Wayne Fair to encourage buffer zone plantings by our residents of the lake.  My concern is introducing species that do not already exist in this area and possibly introducing genetic stock that should not be introduced. I will be purchasing these from the Pierson Nursery in Biddeford.  Any thoughts?

Thank you.
Merrylyn Sawyer
