With record attendance at our May chapter meeting, Kathryn Litton presented on how to use native plants for landscaping.
Kathryn Litton, local landscaper and noted area native expert has created native cultivars and specializes in programs on Native installation for the garden. Litton is well-known in our state and served as the liaison between the Garden Club of Georgia and the State Department of Transportation. Her early experience selling her own natives was not well received initially, so she set about educating homeowners about what they can use in their gardens. Litton has completed several landscaping efforts at public buildings, state and local parks. She brought several plants to show us: amsonia, false blue indigo, dwarf crested iris, lobelia, turtlehead, monarda, boneset, etc. General Supply in Blairsville sells some of the plants she propagates. She is the author of Here Come the Natives booklet available in local bookstores. She answered many questions, offered practical advice, and gave away the plants as door prizes.
