Continuing the theme of last year's Irvine Native Plant Seminar and this year's Lahr Symposium, this month's meeting will compare cultivars of native plants with native species and how these plants relate to the natural communities around us. Join Lou Aronica, a founding member of MNPS and native plant grower, for a presentation on the choices planners, homeowners, and gardeners have in drawing from the region's natural floristic diversity and plant associations, with an aim towards conservation and restoration.
