Bringing the Woodland Home: How to Add Native Plants to your Shade Garden with Roy Diblik  of Northwind Perennial Farm     Photo credit: Adrian Ayres Fisher

Many gardeners wonder what native plants will thrive under tree canopy. Roy Diblik with decades of landscape design experience can guide you in choosing native woodland plants that grow happily in shade gardens. Roy uses texture and color to create welcoming, shady spaces. He will teach us how to plant sedges (aka Carex species) as a ground layer of living mulch. Roy will explain how to build on this bottom layer by adding in spring ephemerals, ferns and other woodland species for bursts of color and interest during the garden season.
