“Hardy and Easy Plants for the Home Landscape”
Presented by Cathy Howard Waldhauser


Are you overwhelmed when trying to select plants for your home landscape?  Do you buy whatever looks prettiest at the garden center or online only to be disappointed by how it performs in your yard?  We will begin with the functions plants can perform in the home landscape … curb appeal or framing an entrance, cooling shade or wind protection, privacy, window views, defining a space, and more. Then we will look at a cross-section of plants by purpose and site conditions with an emphasis on hardy, tried and true classics and some underutilized, less common ones that are long-lived, low-input and low-maintenance.
A summary of plants by selection criteria and a color catalogue will be provided.
