Too often we focus on the gloom and doom of natives. Take a look at this flickr page I found. It shows local government at its best, taking part in native gardens that benefit both man and the environment

Beautiful pictures - I really liked the one featuring the partridge pea - that's a native you don't see too often. Were you part of the team that put these projects together?

BTW - I saw your earlier post of the woodland plants, I noted wingstem and I think Snakeroot but what's the shrub?

No, I am not sure who the photographer is but I think its someone with MNPS maybe? I think the shrub is spicebush if its the picture I am thinking of (yellow leaves). I also took pictures of snakeroot and Yellow Ironweed which should've been the other two

The photographer works for the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). MDC, Grow Native, and the Shaw Nature Reserve all work very hard with community associations, local governments, and property owners to promote native-plant landscaping in the state of Missouri.
