I wish the city would have considered some security before drawing such attention to the area. Now after the fact there is probably little to nothing that can be done. I have a family member who works for the City of Wilmington parks/rec that was deeply distressed by the actions of some thief. I hope camera's or other security measures are taken to save what precious plants are still there. My guess would be they will be back.
FYI: it is nearly impossible for the parks/rec to keep any planted areas nice due to thief of plants.
