Native Plants for Residential Landscapes

September 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

** THIS ONLINE EVENT IS PRESENTED VIA THE OHIO HISTORY CONNECTION and is FREE for OHC members! **

Turn your backyard into a pollinator paradise (and a destination for songbirds and other wildlife) by adding some “powerhouse” native plants. Add long-term, low-maintenance beauty to your landscape with tough native shrubs, trees, perennials, and grasses. We’ll discuss familiar favorites like purple coneflowers and oakleaf hydrangeas, and you’ll meet new treasures like blue vervain, winterberry, and the pagoda dogwood! Class attendees will receive detailed plants lists, general care guidelines, and local resources to help you find your new favorite NATIVE plants.

Why choose native plants over conventional nursery stock? While providing food and habitat for native pollinators and other wildlife, native plants are best suited to our Ohio climate and clay soil conditions. This reduces on the need for water, fertilizer, and pesticides. Native plants are often more deer-resistant than conventional, non-native plants.

Class fee for OHC members FREE
Non-members $15
