Creating Stunning Plant Communities that Stand the Test of Time

Plants are the foundation of healthy ecosystems and they bring beauty and joy to our lives. But great plants alone don't automatically create lasting ecological benefits in our gardens. Claudia West, principal at Phyto Studio, talks about spectacular perennials and grasses and how to use them in stable, layered combinations that increase the ornamental, functional, and ecological value of your landscape.

Learning objective:

  • Discover the basic science behind lasting plant combination.
  • Translate core principles into design and management tools you can use in your next planting project.
  • Explore countless successful designed plant communities for inspiration.
