Gardening for Year-round Interest

Native plants at Mt. Cuba Center.
  • This event has passed.

Native plants fit beautifully into the landscape because they are already adapted to our local growing conditions. Learn about a variety of wildflowers, shrubs, trees and vines that are ideal for home gardens and provide color, texture, ecological services and seasonal interest all year long.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, April 6, 2024.
