Thu, Aug 24 ... Michael Heim ... The cold winters and sandy soils of the northwoods are often regarded as greatly limiting the kinds of plants which will survive and thrive there. However, the winter-long snow blanket and and well-drained acidic soils can actually be a boon to growing a variety of interesting plants, many of which are seldom seen in the Midwest. Some plants are simply quite a bit hardier than they are given credit for. The results of research by Dr. Heim on the adaptability of these plants in a Zone 3 climate will be discussed along with their aesthetic possibilities in an naturalized setting.
