Native Plants for Green Industry Professionals: Fall Blooming Perennials

Fall Flowers (PSU MER)

Native Plants for Green Industry Professionals will introduce landscape professionals to common and underused native plants suitable for a variety of residential and commercial applications.

Mums and asters brighten up the fall landscape but there are so many native options, why not include some of these in your landscaping as well? As we walk through the preserve we will discuss the many fall blooming perennials that not only enliven the home garden, but also provide essential late-season nectar for migrating pollinators.
