The Colorado Native Plant Society (CoNPS) has crafted a user-friendly, pictorial guide to hundreds of the Southwest’s most common native plants, most of which are ideal for use in your home garden. Utilizing a combination of color photographs, botanical illustrations and written descriptions, their book, Common Southwestern Native Plants: An Identification Guide, provides the user with everything needed to identify those elusive plants lining the byways and trails of the region. You will learn about gardening with native plants and have the opportunity to leave with your very own copy Common Southwestern Native Plants.
About the Lecturer: Jennifer Bousselot is the Assistant Professor in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture at Colorado State University. She will be leading our discussion about how we can garden with native plants—selection, care, and cultural requirements. Jen is a lifelong plant lover who did not stop going to school and ended up with a doctorate in horticulture. She joined up with her mentors, the Carters, through her work for CoNPS. The Carters have generously donated this book to CoNPS and the Terra Foundation paid for publishing so part of the proceeds will benefit our nonprofit. Copies of Common Southwestern Native Plants will be for sale following the lecture.
