Panel discussion with Shannan Gibb-Randall, InSite Design Studio, Patrick Judd of Environmental Consulting & Technology, and Bill Schneider of Wildtype Native Plants/Ecological Services. Bob Grese will serve as the moderator.
Often native plants are considered challenging to use in more formal rather than wilder garden situations. Is this a matter of aesthetics or is it a matter of choosing the right plant for the specific conditions? What strategies help make native plantings more acceptable in formal gardens?
Come join in a discussion with a panel of three landscape architects, all
knowledgeable about growing and using native plants in their designs.
