Native Ground Covers for Sun and Shade

September 8 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am EDT


A variety of native plant species, including perennials, ferns, grasses, sedges, and even some woody plants, can function as ground covers in multiple landscape situations. Join Extension Master Gardener Elaine Mills to learn which native plants may serve as excellent replacements for overused and invasive traditional ground covers such as English ivy, liriope, and periwinkle, while providing much-needed food and habitat for our local pollinators and birds
