Held at public venues from mid-morning to early afternoon, the mini-seminars are timed to help managers get their crews out and avoid rush hour!

Top Native Plants for the Mid-Atlantic Region

Holly Shimizu

Visually pleasing and inspiring plants don’t always have to be exotic and hard to source. Holly Shimizu will discuss superior plants that are native to this region and share how to increase the demand and use of these plants to better your business. Enjoy this presentation packed full of visual examples of what these little known and sometimes underutilized plants can do for designs and installations. These plants often require less maintenance and have the advantage of attracting pollinators and birds to make gardens even more interesting. 

Thank you to our exhibitor, Bartlett Tree Experts.
