Native plants are uniquely adapted to local conditions, having co-evolved with other area plants, animals, pollinators, and soil biota. Therefore they require little maintenance and withstand temperature and moisture extremes. Most importantly, native plants provide diverse sources of food and shelter for a wide variety of insects and birds, butterflies, mammals, reptiles, etc. in the complex web of life. Join us for a day-long program that considers gardening with native flowers and trees along with related conservation issues. Learn how to incorporate these plants into your home landscape plan during this day-long series of presentations. Please see complete agenda on-line at botgarden.uga.edu.
