California Native Perennials for the Garden (212-243)

Wednesday evenings August 2, 16, 23 and 30 6:30 - 9:00 pm Sunday field trip August 20, 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Creating native gardens has many benefits: low maintenance, low cost, using ecologically approriate plants, and creating a beautiful, natural environment. Most nurseries that carry native plants focus on the major components of the garden -- shrubs and trees -- but carry only a handful of perennials. This course focuses on the importance of using native perennials to create seasonal color, fill in gaps between larger plants, and entice pollinators into the garden. In each evening session, a specific group of perennials will be presented and discussed. The Sunday field trip to Regional Parks Botanic Garden will show you the diversity of possible perennials that can be grown locally.
