This lecture is intended to provide Mr. Caton’s expertise in understanding how plants behave, the habitats they come from, and how they can be utilized to truly create a low-maintenance landscape—as well as highlighting a suite of plants that he has found to fit well into most any difficult situation.

Ian Caton has been the owner/operator of Wood Thrush Native Plant Nursery (Formerly Enchanters Garden) in Floyd, Virginia since March of 2013. Wood Thrush Native Plants is a nursery specializing in native plants of the Appalachian region including West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and North Carolina. One of the focuses of the nursery is the introduction of new and rare native plants which are little known or underappreciated in the nursery trade.

Previously Ian Caton had been an employee of Larry Weaner Landscape Associates (a landscape firm specializing in the use and promotion of native plants in landscaping) since 2001. He has an ongoing relationship with the firm and its educational arm: “The New Directions in the Landscape (NDAL)” program.

Free for members; $10 suggested non-member donation. After the event, you’ll receive a recorded copy of the talk.
