Hardeeville in Jasper County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Explore Recess Hammock
Look for Chinese parasol trees with pale green trunks and 5-lobed leaves. The Asian trees were planted for shade on Low Country plantations. Notice periwinkle, a purple-flowered vine once cultivated as groundcover. Watch and listen for birds — warblers, thrushes, wrens and sparrows — that nest and feed in the hammock’s mature hardwoods.
Rainwater was collected at slave quarters and funneled to the cistern.
