wildflowersDespite what it might look like outside your windows, spring ephemerals are getting ready to emerge. Join us for an exploration of our most beautiful early bloomers. Many of these plants are disappearing in the wild due to deer and habitat loss. However, you can help increase populations of these plants by growing them in your gardens. This talk will focus on some of the best natives to grow for early color and wildlife value.
