  • This event has passed.

These shrubs and small trees are truly garden-worthy standouts for your home landscape. From the lesser-known pagoda dogwood to the gray dogwood, to the chokeberries and viburnums, these plants provide beauty and structure to your garden, while also providing diverse food sources for your local birds. There is something for every segment of your yard, from sun to shade and dry to wet. Discover less-common native plants that will bring your garden to life by attracting birds and butterflies, adding song and movement to the oasis you create in your own yard.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Friday, May 13
