Wow, what a great transformation Paul!

Please do not plant burning bush or privet either.
Great list Kate, thanks!
There’s a difference between morning Sun and evening Sun? Is it about the timing of the plant chemistry?
Where is the plant sale?
It's on-line today
Start at OakOpenings.org
Thank you for all the great information!
I planted milkweed seeds in milk containers over the winter they are beginning to sprout, up to 1 inch. When is it safe to replant in the ground. We have mostly clay soil.
Thanks for sharing the photos of your landscapes. It seems to be difficult to find photos that are good examples of showing the plants up close and then also photos that show an overall view of established plants in a residential landscape. Does anyone have a good resource for photos that show them in the overall landscape design?
We will have that on the Wild Ones website later this year with booklets
The Rain Garden Initiative is also a great website to visit.
Do you have any suggestions for shrubs to plant in place of burning bushes? The birds in my yards use them frequently for cover.
any suggestions on how to get rid of the invasive multiform rose?
PrarieMoon is awesome! I get seeds from them!
Natives in Harmony in Marengo OH sells Ohio ferns
There is a great book, "Midwestern Native Shrubs and Trees, gardening alternatives to nonnative species" by Adelman & Schwartz
We have an area in the back yard that has standing water for several weeks each spring and sometimes into the summer. Is there a plant that can thrive there, in full sun, without creeping out into the lawn?
can you suggest a shrub or tree that is recommended for privacy that can grow in clay.
Chokeberry and Winterberry are great for the birds too
Chokeberry would probably grow in clay
Ninebark may also grow in clay
Holly trees are great for fruit and cover in the winter
