Presented by: Ian Caton & Larry Weaner

In this session, native plant authority Ian Caton will examine some of the native species that exemplify the ecological characteristics described in the previous sessions, and illustrate how this information can inform the process of selecting and arranging individual plants. He will also present a group of “workhorse species” that combine reliability and weed suppression with attractive aesthetic character. Larry and Ian will then engage attendees in a conversation that explores their shared experiences and answer attendee questions. Larry will conclude by describing the heightened experience that an interactive relationship between people and plants can engender for both designers and their clients.
