Alex’s Favorite Native Plants on DC Lawn and Garden Blog

Alex Dencker, well-known native-plant enthusiast and our Potomac manager, is making a guest appearance today on the wonderful local blog Metro DC Lawn and Garden – check it out.   And no surprise, he’s recommending his favorite native plants for the garden, including the ones you see here.

Crossvine (Bignonia)

Thanks to Betsy Franz, editor/author of the blog, for giving us the opportunity to contribute Alex’s recommendations. Behnkes was already a collective fan of Metro DC Lawn and Garden but this puts us over the top!

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
