Native Shrubs and Trees in the Home Landscape • Miami County

Tuesday, Jan 23rd, 2018 @ 6:30pm

Using native plants in our home and public landscapes requires considerations for plant health, balanced aesthetics, and human interactions. Using examples from her many clients' yards, Paula Diaz will give recommendations for selecting specific native shrubs and trees and placing them to demonstrating their beauty and functions. Even with native plants, the EMG mantra rings true: The right plant + the right place = Success.

A former Master Gardener, Paula is a founding and current member of the Raymore Tree Board, a professional GrowNative! Member serving on the GrowNative!
