Selecting Native Plants for Your Home Garden

MGNV - Sustainable Landscaping LogoIn this overview of native plants, Extension Master Gardener Elaine Mills will explain what they are and how they attract and support our local pollinators, butterflies, and birds. She will describe how to choose beautiful native plants appropriate for the conditions of your yard, illustrating their use in layered forest settings; in lawns, hedgerows, and foundations; in rain gardens; in dry streetscapes; or in a wildlife garden. She will also discuss how native plants differ from cultivars, and provide you with best practices for planting and seasonal management.
