Native Plant Bed
This bed helps the community understand how native plants can be used in our landscapes. Only species native to Indiana or their cultivars are planted in this bed. Free Brochures are available for educational purposes. The bed is located in front (east side) of the Extension Office building.
History of Committee
This bed started in 1985 and was located at the front of the extension office building. This bed was planted with natives. In 2009, this bed was redesigned due to certain natives taking over and having gone to seed taking out other plants. So the garden bed was redone with native plants that are not as likely to reseed as readily.
