MGNV - Sustainable Landscaping LogoMany of the shrubs used in typical foundation plantings, such as euonymus, cherry laurel, and Asian azaleas have been overused in our local landscape. Others, such as privet, nandina, and burning bush are considered invasive in Northern Virginia. Learn how to broaden your plant choices from a palette of alternative native shrubs that can add beauty and diversity to your home garden while providing nectar, pollen, and fruit for local insects and birds.

Online class offered by Extension Master Gardeners.

Speaker: Elaine Mills, an experienced Extension Master Gardener and a creative force behind the resource Tried and True Native Plant Selections for the Mid-Atlantic. Elaine is a co-coordinator of the Glencarlyn Library Community Garden, a Virginia Cooperative Extension Demonstration Garden in Arlington, Virginia.
