Jon will cover plant selection, including his favorite low light varieties, placement, care and maintenance. He will also discuss how boulders, rocks and dry creek beds can be incorporated to add a natural look and additional water savings. Includes a shade tolerant plant list. Bring your questions for Jon to answer.
