Webinar: Tenacious Plants for Tough Places

Wed, May 13, 2020 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 1:00 pm EDT

As confounding as it might be for native plant enthusiasts to hear, not every native plant belongs in the garden. But, for every unruly garden thug or short-lived, delicate flower, there are dozens of tenacious native plants that bring beauty and biodiversity to our gardens. Native plants support local ecology, providing habitat for pollinators and other wildlife, and the right native plants in the right places can help solve landscape challenges, reinforce a garden’s unique regional landscape character, and serve as the foundation of low maintenance landscapes.

With more than a decade of experience in horticulture, Dan Jaffe Wilder understands which native plants are the right choice for any landscape. Join him to learn about tenacious native plants for your projects.

Photographer and author Dan Jaffe Wilder earned a degree in botany from the University of Maine, Orono, an advanced certificate in Native Plant Horticulture and Design from Native Plant Trust (formally New England Wild Flower Society), and has years of nursery management and plant sales experience. He is passionate about ecological horticulture, building both sustainability and wildlife value into every landscape, and the foraging and cultivation of wild edible plants. He is the Horticulturalist and Propagator for Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary and the staff photographer. His book Native Plants for New England Gardens was released spring of 2018.
