Presenters: Ian Caton & Larry Weaner 

In this session, native plant authority Ian Caton will examine examples of individual native species that exemplify the ecological characteristics described in the previous three sessions. He will also present a group of “workhorse” native species that combine reliability and weed suppression with attractive aesthetic character. Larry will conclude by describing some of the communication techniques and artistic flourishes that can help clients embrace a “wilder” landscape experience.

Attendees will receive login-protected access to an extensive course manual including plant lists, an ecology-based plant characteristics chart, equipment recommendations, wildlife habitat enhancement strategies, diagrams for planting and maintenance procedures, and more.
