Native Plants that Bridge the Spring-Summer Divide

It is often said that there is lull between the big spring wildflower blood of April and May, and the later summer and autumn flowers that fill the meadows of July through September. 

What of June? This presentation will highlight flowering native plants that bridge the seasonal gap. Particular emphasis will be placed on those plants that fit into a shade-loving garden as this is the area where the lull is most pronounced. 

Ian Caton is the owner/operator of Wood Thrush Native Plants, a nursery specializing in native plants of the Appalachian region, including W. Virginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and North Carolina since 2013. Ian graduated from Delaware Valley College (now University) with a BS in Ornamental Horticulture and Environmental Design. He has an extensive knowledge of native plants, natural communities and their incorporation into the human environment. In addition to many years of experience designing and installing native landscapes, this knowledge was gained primarily through his long running relationship with Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve. He has also had the opportunity to work with local governments on the development of landscape plans for public spaces.
