Favorite Native Plants Through the Seasons

  • Maze Branch Library 845 Gunderson Avenue Oak Park, IL, 60304 United States (map)

Discover the inner and outer beauty of some of Denise Sandoval’s favorite native plants after 18 years of native plant gardening in her own yard and 13 years designing native landscapes for others. She’ll discuss those she uses most often in her designs because they are beautiful, versatile and easy to grow, do well in clay soils, easy to find, take a range of moisture conditions as well as sun conditions. Learn about their physical attributes, their behavior, how to use them in the garden, plus some of the wildlife they support.

Denise Sandoval is the landscape designer, horticulturalist, naturalist and owner of Good-Natured Landscapes, LLC, whose mission is to create beautiful, functional and kind to the Earth landscapes. Her focus is blending local ecology with great design, with an emphasis on wildlife habitat and water conservation. Mother Nature is her greatest teacher and inspiration. Website:
