The program of Transitioning Residential Landscapes for a More Sustainable Future was presented at the PNPS 2016 Annual Meeting on September 24, 2016. We had a terrific turnout (over 100 people) with extremely positive responses to this program. If you weren't able to attend, the presentation was videotaped.

Partridgeberry - Mitchella repens
When walking in the woods, if you look down you will probably see a small leaved little plant winding its way along the ground. In spring, you may notice small, white slightly fragrant flowers along the stem. But it is most notable from late autumn through early spring, when its evergreen foliage and bright red berries show up against the browns of a winter woods floor. The leaves are only about ½ inch across, nearly round and occur in pairs, with a white contrasting rib. This diminutive little plant is often overlooked, but can be a wonderful addition to a native garden. It prefers rich, acidic soil.
If you have a favorite plant or photo, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for a future publication.
