Flowering native plants add color naturally - Woodstock Independent
There is also a white native turtlehead (Chelone gasbar).
Those are just a few of the native shrubs in my yard. For a great source of Illinois native shrubs, go to web.extension.illinois.edu/shrubselector. You will find a photo of the bloom and information about light requirements, soil requirements, native or non-native, and the size of the shrub when mature. It also gives you an idea of what the shrub can be used for: barrier, border, foundation, hedge, naturalizing, or as a screen.
It is always a good idea to put the “right plant in the right place,” as I have learned from experience, instead of having to move it later.
If you are attracted to the idea of gardening with native plants, the Wildflower Preservation and Propagation Committee can help. It is a 501(c)(3) organizations, and since 2005 it has helped more than 225 homeowners design native plant gardens through a mentoring program.
Visit the website thewppc.org and look under programs for garden mentoring. There you can read more about the program and download an application that needs to be returned by Aug. 25.

Garden enthusiasts gather at NIU's Rockford campus to discuss growing food and flowers - WREX-TV
ROCKFORD (WREX) — Gardening experts and enthusiasts gather at Northern Illinois University's Rockford campus to discuss the different uses for home gardens and nature areas. Experts say they hope the skills community members learn will benefit the planet.
To some Rockford area community members Spring means gardening time.
"It's a time when everyone is tired of winter, tired of being inside, looking forward to working in their gardens and their yards," says Margaret Larson, University of Illinois County Extension director.
"This is still a good time to start planning things, think about what you want to grow this season, think about what new annual plants you want to put out in the garden," says Grant McCarty, University of Illinois County Extension local foods and small farms educator.

Cheryl O'Farrell, 63 of Montrose, Mo. - 921News
House of Hound or St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital
Cheryl Denise O’Farrell, 63, passed away peacefully on October 7, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. She was the daughter of Donald and Margaret Ann (Herberger) Barry born on January 31, 1956. She spent her formative years in the Appleton City area, where she graduated from high school in 1974. Following the completion of her education, she married Clifford “Hoot” O’Farrell, her husband of 31 years. They shared four wonderful children: Chad, Denise, Sean, and Nathan.
Cheryl spent many hours raising her children, and also managed to complete her nursing certificate and cosmetology license. She worked as a CNA for many years at Ellet Memorial Hospital, where many patients benefited from her humor and gentle touch. She also worked at Headstart Preschool, and was a hairdresser. Apart from her careers, she dearly loved to spend time with family and friends fishing, camping, and traveling. Cheryl loved family get togethers, where she displayed her wit and decidedly and freely gave her opinions. She was an incredible gardener, who loved doing yard chores. Along with these activities, she enjoyed gambling and spending her hard earned dollar at Downstream Casino, where, according to her, she “rarely lost.” Her most cherished hobby, however, was taking motorcycle trips across the United States. She and “Hoot” rode many long miles together with their biker friends on their Harley Davidson freewheeler. She will be deeply missed by her many friends and family.
