Gardening with Local Native Plants

Why plant local native plants? 

They conserve water.

They require less maintenance.

They create a sense of place. 

They are adapted to our soils and climate patterns. 

They increase biodiversity in the landscape.

Ms. Spolyar will discuss a number of plants local to the Fort Bend area that are garden-worthy and are available for sale locally.  Informative handouts will be available.

Mary Spolyar is a Texas Master Naturalist in the Gulf Coast Chapter and an instructor for the Native Plant Society of Texas, Houston Chapter's Native Landscape Certification Program.
