Spring ephemerals are those long-awaited spring flowers we often have to go to the woods to see. They are perennial plants that have a short life-cycle before dying back to their roots. Examples of plants we enjoy in Ohio include: Spring Beauty, Dutchman Breeches, Virginia Bluebells and Bloodroot. This program will focus on when and how to plan for your 2018 shade gardens providing year-round color starting with spring.  We will also learn what to plant under a Black Walnut Tree Juglans nigra.


Presenter: Gale Martin

Gale is part-owner of Natives in Harmony Nursery near Marengo Ohio. Gale is also a trustee on the Ohio Prairie Association Board.  Gale believes that the preservation of local-genotype plants is of the utmost importance. Local-genotype means the strain is correct for the area. She believes this is a very important detail. Natives in Harmony has multiple wildflower patches and prairie on its grounds which are used as the seed source for nursery propagation.
