Natureworks & Native Works

My garden club, Connecticut Valley Garden Club held its monthly meeting today.  While I always look forward to these meetings, today I was especially excited as a friend of mine was the speaker.  Nancy DuBrule-Clemente who is the founder and owner of Natureworks of Northford came to speak about successions of bloom with native plants.  Nancy is as crazy about gardening as I am (this can be hard to find) and her enthusiasm over plants is contagious. I love Nancy! She is a super green gardener who uses native plants and organic products a lot.    

Nancy talked about over 80 plants offering flowers, exceptional foliage or fruit throughout the year.  The following few plants are ones that I find exceptional and hope to add to my plant family (a.k.a. Garden) this year:
Cercis Canadensis, ‘Forest Pansy’, Redbud

Chionanthus virginicus, Fringe Tree
Sambucus racemosa ‘Black Lace’, Elderberry

Ilex verticillata ‘Sprite’, Winterberry
