How can we help beautiful native plants thrive in that traditional bastion of boxwoods and pachysandra, the foundation garden? In this one-hour session, we will focus on native shrubs, small trees, perennials, and groundcovers that suit foundation gardens. We’ll also explore some of the special design challenges associated with this part of the landscape, talk about native species and their “nativars,” look at native substitutes for traditional foundation plants, and identify deer-resistant selections. Handouts will include useful lists of plants and design resources.
