Native prairie grasses are one option for landscaping a backyard.

Landscaping with plants native to Iowa is beneficial for the environment, but it comes with its own unique set of challenges. 

On this weekly edition of 'Horticulture Day,' Iowa State University Associate Professor Cindy Haynes and DNR Forester Mark Vitosh give advice on choosing the right plants for crafting native gardens and landscapes. 

Later on, they answer a variety of questions from callers about gardens, grasses, plants, trees and more. 

Guests:

  • Cindy Haynes, Associate Professor of Horticulture at Iowa State University
  • Mark Vitosh, Department of Natural Resources Forester
