Native plants are hot right now, and for good reason! Many gardeners recognize the importance of weighing aesthetics with ecological value in their horticultural practice, and they see the use of native plants as crucial to benefiting wildlife and humans alike. This talk explores the underlying concepts and approaches to using regionally appropriate native plants and how you can welcome native plants into your garden no matter where you live in North America.
