Native Plants for Green Industry Professionals: Spring Perennials & Ephemerals

Peggy Adams, Penn State University

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.

Often overlooked as landscape plants because of their short season, spring ephemerals brighten up early spring landscapes and then fade to allow room for the later blooming plants to show off. We will also take a look at other spring blooming perennials that can be included in landscapes to expand the display season.
