We continue to learn just how important creating/maintaining native habitat is for a healthy ecology. Native plants are critical to the health of our insect and bird populations, but there can be a couple of stumbling blocks to incorporating them into our more managed garden spaces. First, what does native mean? Second, which plants work well in a more managed situations, offering both aesthetic and native benefits? In this session, horticulturist Kevin Wilcox will specifically discuss trees that are up to the task in a variety of cultural conditions. Since he ran out of time in last fall’s class, he will start with the shrubs he didn’t get to and then introduce the trees.
