One plant that continues to hold my interest season to season is the native Virginia Willow. As gardeners have become more environmentally conscious, they're employing more environmentally sound principles in the landscape.

Gardeners have become more environmentally conscious over the past few decades. They're employing more environmentally sound principles in the landscape, such as using less pesticide, composting more, and even installing rain gardens.

Plant pallettes have also changed slightly for gardeners, incorporating into the landscape more pollinator friendly plants as well as native species.
