Gardening with Native Plants

Jason Shimmel Gardening in Boulder can be challenging with our abundant sunshine, dry climate and relatively poor soils. Native plants, those indigenous to the southwest and great plains and prairie states, are well suited to our Colorado climate, and can require less water and maintenance than non-natives.  They can also support butterflies, hummingbirds, bees and local bird populations by bringing in beautiful color throughout the growing season.  Jason will focus on which natives grow best in Boulder and how to let them flourish in your own garden.
