While many native plant species make good garden plants, certainly not all are ideal. Breeders and plant hunters have come up with many cultivars of natives (nativars) that do make excellent garden plants. Sometimes these are simply selections found out in nature and other times they are planned hybrids. Since these plants are going into ornamental gardens rather than natural areas, their aesthetic qualities become equal to their native heritage. Indeed, sometimes they become strangers in a strange land. In this talk we will look at some of the better selections for the Midwest.
