Depending on your point of view, nativars (cultivated varieties of native plants) are either the improved version of their wild cousins or ecologically impoverished ornaments. Hear how recent work at Mt. Cuba Center illuminates the real qualities of these plants and take away some ideas on how best to use them in your garden.
