Specialized relationships between wild animals and plants are the norm, not the exception. These relationships provide birds with insects and berries, disperse bloodroot seeds, pollinate goldenrod and so on. Plants that evolved in concert with local animals provide for their needs better than plants that evolved elsewhere. Doug will explain why this is so and how we can create beautiful gardens that support native biodiversity.
