Description
In this presentation native plant expert Ethan Dropkin will describe the location and salient characteristics of the eco-regions found in the mid-Atlantic states. He will also discuss the keystone species of each, including descriptions of their physical characteristics, proliferation strategies, habitat requirements, and role in the process of ecological succession - crucial information rarely found in horticulture literature. Ian will conclude by describing a group of generalist species that can thrive reliably across eco-regions and habitat types, providing designers with some reliable “meat and potatoes” plant choices.
