ST. GEORGE — When planning landscaping for homes and businesses, whether on a broad scale or perhaps just adding a plant or two, many plants native to the St. George area can make suitable and interesting choices but are often disregarded.

The public is invited to a free workshop on native gardens Saturday, 10 a.m., at the Washington County Water Conservancy District office, 533 E. Waterworks Drive in St. George, where 60 such native plants will be identified and discussed.

The workshop will be led by Lee Hughes, who has nearly 40 years experience in range management, forest restoration and rare and listed plant monitoring with the Bureau of Land Management.

Hughes will briefly talk about past and present uses of these plants, including their individual water needs. At the completion of this workshop, a tour of the Red Hills Desert Garden will be offered.

Parking in the lower lot of the Washington County Water Conservancy District office is recommended.
