Seasonal color plants add to the beauty and ever-changing nature of the garden. These seasonal color plants each have different growing requirements, transportation distances, display durations, etc. In this presentation you will learn how a strategically developed matrix of decision-making criteria, incorporating sustainability factors, can help you select seasonal color plants that will have reduced environmental impact and resource demand. As a result, attendees will come away with a better understanding of how to create beautiful seasonal displays that are more environmentally friendly.
