Darryl Newman from Planters Choice will discuss native cultivars and non-invasive exotic plants that can be used to meet challenging conditions when designing a more formal landscape. He will focus on plants that have great potential but are underused and could, consequently, be phased out of production by suppliers. Mr. Newman will also provide tips on installation, establishment and maintenance for these plants.
