    and I've been promoting native Californian and water-thrifty gardens for twenty years now. (I designed and maintain two large on-campus school gardens for what I call a "built-in field trip." I like the name "schooyard habitat.")

    But there's no doubt in my mind that if I was in Georgia, for example, or New Hampshire (or wherever), that I'd be promoting either Georgia or New Hampshire native plants.
    (I'd add that if I included critters in those landscapes that they'd be indigenous critters as well.)
