Demand is growing for native plant gardens and expectations are rising for how they look and perform. Native wildflowers and grasses grow differently in gardens than their bred and tamed counterparts. Innovation in mixed planting design brings out the best in native plants while helping fulfill their design potential: less maintenance, more pollinators, and a soothing natural beauty often lacking in geometric block plantings.

Dustin Demmer, Blazing Star Gardens, will present case studies of naturalistic garden design in Minnesota. His pragmatic approach to plant selection, installation methods, and maintenance regimes will satisfy any landscape designer tired of the lofty promises surrounding native plantings and the real-world results that frequently fall short. This new approach meets the higher expectations of clients at a reasonable cost and crew skill level.

Dustin Demmer is the owner of Blazing Star Gardens LLC, a native plant nursery and landscaping company located in Owatonna. Blazing Star Gardens uses native plants and innovative designs to create exceptional public and private gardens throughout Minnesota.
