Class: Learn about Designing With Native Plants


Native plants can connect our designed landscapes to the larger natural world, provide high-quality habitat, and dazzle us with their beauty. Travis Beck, Mt. Cuba Center’s Director of Horticulture, discusses when to apply different definitions of “native” and shows examples of beautifully designed gardens in a variety of styles, from edgy urban to neatly formal. Learn a variety of strategies for selecting the right plants for the project and discover how to manage some of the unique design challenges when using native plants.
