Cuba Center’s Director of Horticulture, discusses when to apply different definitions of “native” and shows examples of beautifully designed gardens in a variety of styles, from edgy urban to neatly formal. Learn a variety of strategies for selecting the right plants for the project and discover how to manage some of the unique design challenges when using native plants.
