  • Ask the Expert: Using native inspiration

    The hot humid days of summer are upon us. We seek relief in many ways — trips to the park, the pool, the river, or bicycle and car rides, just to catch the breeze. One of the great pleasures of those June and July outings for this plant collector and gardener is savoring the lush growth of grasses and wildflowers that grace our country roadsides.
