Hardy and Easy Plants for the Home Landscape
Are you overwhelmed when trying to select plants for a home landscape project? Do you tend to buy whatever looks prettiest at the garden center or online only to be disappointed or surprised 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 … and look at some of the hardy classic and underutilized plants that fulfill those needs. The focus will be on hardy, tried and true classics and some underutilized, less common plants that are long-lived, low-input and low-maintenance.
