Native Meadows: Let’s Get Real
Thursday, August 12, noon – 1:30 p.m. CDT
Wildflower meadows were introduced to the American gardening public in the 1960s along with tie-dye tee shirts and kaleidoscopic acid trips. But just like those 60’s acid trips, the colors never lasted. Alternatively, by planting site-adapted native perennials, managed according to the ecological processes that govern open field vegetation in the wild, long-lived vibrant meadows can be consistently achieved. In this presentation plant selection criteria, planting procedures and management techniques will be illustrated through a series of residential case studies, including some over two decades old.
