A Grower's Perspective on Native Plants in the Landscape
Wednesday, May 12, 2021
Attire: Casual Attire
Rick Webb has been a native plant grower, enthusiast, and advocate for over thirty years. His program was filmed at his Louisiana Growers Nursery in Amite, Louisiana. He has chosen some well-liked native trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, and wildflowers to discuss with you. He will share years of experience in growing these plants in a nursery setting, and why and where they would be happy in your home garden.
Rick will talk about Hollies, Ecosystems, Wetland Plants, Prairies and Wildflower Gardens, and Bird Thickets. He will emphasize the importance of private land in restoration efforts – don’t count on public parks to do this!
Plant questions for Rick can be submitted on the “Ask Rick” online form which he will use during his presentation. The deadline for submitting a question is March 31, 2021.
Rick is the owner, along with his wife Susan, of Louisiana Growers, a wholesale nursery in the piney woods of Tangipahoa Parish. He specializes in growing trees, shrubs, grasses, and wildflowers native to the central Gulf Coast. His plants have found their way into private gardens, arboretums, and significant public and commercial projects. Rick is former president of the Southeast LA Nursery Association, the LA Nursery and Landscape Association, the LA Native Plant Society, and the Amite Chamber of Commerce.
