Oregon native plants range from towering trees to creeping groundcovers and include many flowering shrubs that are excellent choices for local gardens. They offer attractive options for local gardens with the benefits of attracting wildlife.
Lincoln County Master Gardener Ann Geyer will lead a roundtable to share information about choosing and caring for native plants that work well in coastal gardens on Oct 25 from 9:30 to 11:30 at South Beach Community Center, 3024 SE Ferry Slip Rd, South Beach, OR 97366.
“I have found that natives do very well integrated in residential gardens, says Ann who grows about 50 different species. “Once the plants are established, they provide year round interest with a moderate amount of care. I especially like watching all the birds, bees, and small animals that share my garden.”
