Native Plant Collaborative Series – Digging Deeper: Landscaping with Natives
As people transition to using more native plants in their landscapes, they often feel unsure of how to proceed. Lissa Morrison has been presenting for several years urging people to landscape with natives.
This presentation will cover the ‘how to’ for creating new beds, remodeling existing beds, adding more natives without adding more work, and tips for native plant maintenance. To support our native wildlife, we need to move away from the highly manicured and perfect look. However, messy and wild is often not appropriate for many settings. Lissa hopes to offer her expertise for taming the wild and creating beautiful landscapes that still support healthy habitats.
Lissa Morrison has worked in the field of horticulture for 35+ years. In the past she has owned a wholesale plant nursery and a retail garden center – White River Nursery – in south Fayetteville. She also worked at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks (BGO) for 8 years, before retiring in 2018. The last 4 years at BGO, Lissa was the Horticulture Supervisor and the Designer at the gardens.
This program part of a series of free educational programs, hikes, and workshops offered at the Eureka Springs Community Center and produced by the Eureka Springs Parks & Recreation, the Northwest Arkansas Master Naturalists, the Carroll County Master Gardeners, and Wild Ones – Ozark Chapter.
