    Keystone Species of Native Plants

    Certain groups of native plants referred to as “keystone plants” have been found to be especially supportive of wildlife. In this program Extension Master Gardeners Elaine Mills and Kathie Clements describe selected species of trees, shrubs, vines, and perennials native to the Mid-Atlantic region which offer food and shelter for pollinators and birds and provide sustenance to the full lifecycle of our local butterflies and moths. Attractive features, care requirements, and ideas for landscape uses will be presented for each native species. Elaine Mills is the creative force behind the resource Tried and True Native Plant Selections for the Mid-Atlanticand is the co-coordinator for the Glencarlyn Library Community Garden, a Virginia Cooperative Extension Demonstration Garden in Arlington, Virginia. Kathie Clements, a newly certified Extension Master Gardener, has a focused interest in native plants.
