The Mid-Atlantic region has around 4,000 native plant species, offering a wide range of choices for gardeners seeking something different. There’s a native perennial for virtually any landscape challenge, from waterlogged spots to dry, infertile soil. Have an urban site where concrete has made the soil alkaline? Look at natives from limestone glades and limestone barrens. Want native plants with a long season of bloom? Think about Verbena canadensis (rose vervain) or Campanula rotundifolia (harebell). Janet will show lesser-known native plants that can solve problems and contribute unique beauty to landscapes.
