Elizabeth Loos, master gardener, presented to the AVGC in June on Wildflowers. These are native flowering plants, or forbs, that thrive without human care. They are well suited as garden plants because of their low-care nature and their ability to attract pollinators. The presentation covers choosing an appropriate site, preparing the ground, buying seeds, planting, and cultivation. Agastache, Gaillardia, Penstemon, Asclepias, Glandularia, and Baileya are mentioned as good candidate genera for our location.
