Landscape Learning Threads: Observation and Analysis into Practice

Long-term observation of a plant’s behavior in the wild can yield valuable insight into its likely behavior in a garden. If that insight is applied to other similar species, that value is multiplied. In this presentation Larry will show how observation and ecologically-informed analysis shaped his understanding of how, where, and why wild indigenous species succeed or fail in cultivated settings. Finally, he will informally discuss some of the pivotal projects, conversations, and realizations that transpired during his landscape career.
