Abstract: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at the Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge in Dare County, North Carolina, has established a native plant garden at its visitor center. The garden demonstrates the species of native grasses indigenous to the coastal dunes of the refuge. It also features the forbs commonly found in association with the grasses. It includes trailing wild bean, the “pea” after which the Service named the refuge. Each species is labeled to teach visitors the identity of each plant. There is a brochure available in the visitor center that describes each species, where they occur in the coastal dune vegetative community, and how to propagate them and establish them in a landscape.
