Simpson Park Demonstration Garden: Tuesdays@10

Simpson Park Demonstration Garden 420 East Monroe Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia

Economically, exotic invasives cost the United States over $120 billion annually (Pimentel et al. 2005). Exotic invasives come in all shapes, sizes, and kingdoms. Virginia has over 90 species of exotic invasive plants. "Right Plant, Right Place" is an easy guide for homeowners to remember when planting. Extension Master Gardeners have many other solutions to planting beautiful eco-friendly gardens as alternatives to invasive plants. See examples of pollinator beds and shade loving plants. We will be on hand to answer your questions about the demonstration gardens and "Right plant, Right place."
