Class Title: Growing Native Wildflowers
Instructor: Craig Huegel
Class Description:Are you thinking about adding some native color to your yard?Florida is blessed with a rich diversity of native plants that can be successfully used in home landscapes. Native wildflowers, when used appropriately, are well-adapted to Florida’s growing conditions and require less water, fertilizer, and other inputs to remain healthy. Unlike the vast majority of non-natives, wildflowers also serve a significant role in attracting native pollinators – butterflies and native bees - and creating life in the landscape. Finally, a great many wildflowers are simply beautiful in their own right. This talk by Dr. Craig Huegel will explore the various roles that native wildflowers can play in the home landscape, and focus attention on some of the best choices that can be effectively used. Dr. Huegel will be available for book signing after the lecture.
