In your flowerbeds, do you plant native or non-native plants? Or a combination? Why?
Here’s a variety of thoughts for organizations in selecting plants and flowers:
- Non-natives to provide the beauty for guests
- A combination of natives and non-native plants to maximize pollination throughout the season
- Memorial gardens
- Historical or symbolic meaning
Is the decision based upon one person’s decision, or is it an organizational decision for the entire property? If the later, does it tie into the mission?
