Presented by: Larry Weaner, FAPLD
Wildflower meadows were introduced to the American gardening public in the days of tie dye tee shirts and kaleidoscopic acid trips. Unfortunately, early meadow plantings all too often consisted of only short-lived species not adapted to the site. And just like those acid trips, the colors didn’t last. Alternatively, by using site adapted native perennials, long lived vibrant meadows are quite achievable. In this presentation, plant selection criteria, planting procedures, and management techniques will be illustrated through a series of residential case studies, including some over two decades old.
