This incomparable sourcebook includes 235 recommended native trees, shrubs, vines, ferns, wildflowers, grasses, sedges, and annuals. It’s everything you need to know to create a beautiful and beneficial garden. A must-have handbook for gardeners in the northeast.

Uli oversees daily operations at both Garden in the Woods, Native Plant Trust’s botanic garden in Framingham, MA, and Nasami Farm in western Massachusetts, a nursery focused on propagation of and research about New England native plants. A native of Delaware, Uli grew up with an interest in all things green and held positions at the US National Arboretum and Wave Hill before becoming curator of the Native Flora Garden at Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG) between 2005 and spring 2019. During his tenure at BBG, Uli worked closely with botanists throughout the region to collect seed from the wild, propagate new plants for the collection, and document and studied the region’s biodiversity. Uli is a tireless advocate for the use of native plants in the designed landscape, advancing this narrative through public speaking, teaching, radio, podcast, social media, and print media. He has contributed as an author and photographer to several Brooklyn Botanic Garden publications, including Great Natives for Tough Places, A Native Plant Reader, and The Northeast Native Plant Primer: 235 Plants for an Earth-Friendly Garden. He holds degrees in Landscape Horticulture and Foreign Languages and Literature from the University of Delaware.


This virtual event is brought to you through a collaboration between the Cleveland Pollinator and Native Plant Symposium, Nature Spark, and Western Reserve Land Conservancy.
