Shady landscapes are easy to care for since they require minimal weeding and watering. In addition, they support a host of interesting woodland birds, pollinating insects and small animals and are also lovely places to be on hot days.

Native plants are well adapted to local conditions.

They have value to wildlife and many were once used as medicines or dyes. There are woody and herbaceous species with delicate blossoms, an array of fruits and seeds, a variety of leaf shapes and colors, and interesting bark or branching patterns.

Garrett Ormiston is the GIS (Geographic Information System) and Stewardship Specialist in the Natural Areas Division of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. He works on land protection projects and helps map rare species on Museum preserves, he has a keen interest in promoting the use of native plants in landscaping projects as an alternative to invasive plantings. He is also the owner of a small landscaping company, Ormiston Landscaping, where he works on many projects with an emphasis on utilizing native plants in the home landscape.

Come join us!

New members and guests are always welcome!
