Subject:  Bloodroot, Bluebells, and Butterflies: Spring Beauties for Biodiversity
Speaker: Deb Ellis

When we garden, we can support biodiversity through the plants we choose.  In this workshop, you will learn how to grow our charming spring wildflowers and how they sustain native bees and butterflies early in the season.  Since many of these flowers are shade lovers, they grow well under deciduous trees. You will learn about spring ephemerals, like Virginia Bluebells and Dutchman’s Britches, as well as spring flowers that become groundcovers, such as Golden Ragwort and Wild Bleeding Heart.
