Timeline PhotosThe Landscaping with Colorado Native Plants Conference is brought to you by a coalition of partner organizations: Butterfly Pavilion, Colorado State University Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, CSU Denver Extension, Colorado Native Plant Master Program®, Colorado Native Plant Society, Denver Botanic Gardens, Front Range Wild Ones, High Plains Environmental Center, and Susan J Tweit, author.
The Landscaping with Colorado Native Plants Conference promotes the inclusion of native plants in our landscaping to benefit pollinators and songbirds, save water, and restore the beauty and health of nature in the places we live, work and play.
While we recommend the use of straight species and local ecotypes wherever possible, we support the use of varieties and cultivars of native species as long as their breeding doesn’t interfere with their ability to function in nature and maintain key relationships with pollinators and other lives.

I made this "fake" image in photoshop to show what I mean, I couldn't find the original post. ...
