Native Annuals: An Underutilized Resource (Online)

Native Annuals An Underutilized Resource
  • This event has passed.

This program takes place online Wednesday, July 14

Annuals, biennials, and short-lived perennials are an integral part of ecosystem health and plant community function; but this group of useful and beautiful plants is largely ignored by gardeners. Ethan presents the life cycle and environmental functions of these plants as well as how to best incorporate them into your home landscape. Though native annuals and biennials may be short-lived, they can have a large and lasting effect on the landscape.
