Native Plants in the Landscape

Tuesday, October 16, 2018
1:00pm – 3:00pm

Hartford County Extension Center, Exchange Building, Suite 262, 270 Farmington Ave. Farmington, CT 06032

Uconn's Professor Jessica Lubell will talk about many native shrubs that are adaptable to landscape conditions— such as the readily available Rhus and Juniperus, as well as lesser-known taxa like Aronia, Diervilla, Prunus, Myrica, Corylus, and Spiraea. She will discuss her wide-ranging research on this subject, including controlled studies on the adaptability of native shrubs, and improved methods of nursery propagation to increase the availability of native taxa. This presentation will be enlightening to all who garden with natives.
