Year-round Color

With Native Plants

With Madeline Morrow- Master Gardener, CNPS-SCV Past-president and current board member













Enhancing biodiversity can be beautiful.

Learn how to select and group  plants with varying bloom times so your garden is never without color. See  how to choose different plant forms and include beautiful bark, berry, and  seed producing species for maximum interest all year long.

You’ll enjoy  your garden in every season and so will the bees, butterflies and other  insects, lizards, and birds!  

Madeline Morrow,  a former computer programmer, now volunteers in her community and works extensively on her native garden. Her garden  was featured

in Bay Nature magazine in March 2013.

She is an avid  gardener who switched her focus to native plants in 1993 when she learned how essential native plants are for wildlife, first in upstate  NY, and then in California. In her current garden she has learned a  lot about gardening on heavy clay and strategies for drainage  problems and retaining rainwater. These include installing

a rain  garden.

Her garden is usually on the CNPS-SCV Growing Natives  Garden Tour because

she is passionate about spreading the word about native plant gardening.
