Individual Session: Native Meadows: Let’s Get Real

Tuesday, February 15, 6 – 7:15 p.m. CST

Wildflower meadows were introduced in the 1960’s along with tie dye tee shirts and kaleidoscopic acid trips. But like those acid trips, the colors didn’t last. Alternatively, by planting site-adapted and highly competitive native perennials, managed according to the ecological processes that govern native meadow 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.

Speaker: Larry Weaner, FAPLD
