Learn about selecting and growing native plants that showcase the colors of Fall on Wednesday, September 25, at 2:00 pm.
A native plant is one that occurs naturally in a particular region without direct or indirect human intervention. Native plants include all kinds of plants from mosses, lichen and ferns to wildflowers, shrubs, and trees. Because native plants are adapted to the growing conditions where you live, they are often easier to grow, and less susceptible to challenging conditions than non-native plants. As with any plant that you want to grow, however, the right plant must be matched with the right spot. For assistance on getting a good match, come to the Simpson Public Library and have Annette Macoy help you select the correct “Native Plants for Fall Color.”
