Native plants evolve to thrive in local conditions and survive harsh seasons. Native Plants for New England Gardens culls the expertise of the New England Wild Flower Society to help anyone create lovely, hardy gardens that will tolerate drought, resist disease and encourage biodiversity. Join New England Wild Flower Society Director of the Botanic Garden Mark Richardson, as he shares information on great native flowers, ground covers, shrubs, ferns, and grasses that will thrive in your garden — the planet will thank you.
A book sale/signing will take place after the presentation. Refreshments will be served.
