Join nationally-known native plant propagator and plant wiz Bill Cullina for an intensive two-day seminar (April 30 and May 1, 9:30 – 3:30) on the best native plant materials available today. This New England Wild Flower Society course will cover a variety of herbaceous and woody temperate North American plants that are becoming important for use in the design and landscape trades. Plants with extraordinary hardiness, pest resistance, flowering characteristics, texture, and habitat value will be featured. Emphasis will be on identifying plants that reflect the ambient native plant communities, and which lend well to ecologically-informed designs. Both native wild-type and some cultivars will be examined, and information on growing and maintaining plants in the landscape will be presented. Amateur horticulturists are welcome.Â Fee, including lunch and snack, is $225 for NEWFS members, $270 for nonmembers.Â To register, or for more information, log on to www.newfs.org.
