    Native Plants in Your Garden: Lessons from Nature and Culture 
    Cole Burrell, garden designer, award winning author

    Native plants are currently the height of fashion, but do we really know what is native, and where? When we plant a floodplain species in an upland situation, are we gardening ecologically? Are cultivars native? These are a few of the questions Burrell will explore as he examines the current popularity of landscaping with native plants from an ecological perspective. This lecture focuses on techniques for working with seasonal rhythms, structure, and dynamics of native plant communities to design sustainable native gardens of unique and lasting beauty.
