Description

There’s a growing trend to incorporate native plants in landscapes, not only for their ability to save water, but also for the incredible beauty and the countless ecosystem services they provide.

At the new Irving Archives and Museum (IAM), join this plant workshop with Daniel Cunningham, Texas Plant Guy and horticulturist with Texas A&M AgriLife’s Water University program to learn how to grow your favorite native wildflowers, trees, shrubs as well as perennials with lush vibrant colors and textures to make your garden the envy of the neighborhood.

You’ll also talk proper soil preparation, proper installation, and provide tips for long-term maintenance to keep your native landscape looking best. You’ll be provided a plant list as big as the Lone Star State.

Free admission.
