November 14, 2020 - Grasses, Sedges and Rushes

On November 14th restoration ecologist, botanist, and horticulturist Nancy Bissett shared her knowledge about Grasses, Sedges and Rushes with Passionflower members and supporters. Nancy explained how these attractive and useful native plants have a lot to recommend them - they provide structure and an interesting accent in wildflower gardens, make a great groundcover in open, dry areas, are low maintenance, stabilize soil, provide seeds and shelter for wildlife, and many are larval hosts for butterflies and moths. Most attendees were familiar with pink muhly grass; however Nancy described and showed gorgeous pictures of a lot of other species.  You can watch the recorded Grasses, Sedges and Rushes program.
