Plants are the foundation of healthy ecosystems and they bring beauty and joy to our lives. But great plants alone don’t automatically create “ecological” benefits in our gardens. Claudia West, ecological sales manager at North Creek Nurseries, premier wholesale perennial grower in Landenberg, PA, talks about spectacular perennials and grasses and how to use them in stable, layered, natural combinations that increase both the ornamental and ecological value of your home landscape. Claudia is co-author off a new book, Planting in a Post-Wild World, with landscape architect Thomas Rainer, to be published this fall by Timber Press.
