Why Use Native Plants For Landscaping?

Native plants are grown from their wild relatives; their color, size, nectar, pollen production, and everything about them are authentic and have not been changed except by natural evolution. The benefits of native plants compared to hybrid and otherwise man cultivated species include a longer life span, less need for fertilizer and insecticides, increased aroma, drought resistant ( due to the very deep roots), easy to overwinter, generally disease free and the native birds, butterflies and bees love them.
Native plants are plants that have been growing here for many hundreds of years. Each area has its own native plants so in planting native plants you will want to make sure they are native to your area.

The prairies were self sustainable until the advent of plows and urban development removed most of them, leaving just a remnant of their former glory. Because native plants are so hardy they are also slow growing and require some patience to grow and establish. However as their root systems take hold (some roots go as deep as 20 feet) they will out shine any non native. Once established they will require much less maintenance than any traditional landscapes.

Some of the key benefits of using native plants:

· Provide habitat for native wildlife
· Beautiful view of waving grasses and blooming flowers
· Helps clean the air
· Helps clean the rainwater and runoff that goes to our aquifers
· Provides something of value for the next generation
Native grasses are also being tested as a possible bio fuel that would be economical and readily available. The research on this application of native grasses looks very promising and could be grown throughout the Midwest.

Help Create A New Book of Childhood Memories About Plants

Hi folks, we are very excited about creating a new book filled with childhood memories of learning about a plant or plants! We have compiled comments from the Iowa Native Plant Society members and those will be included in our book but before we complete it, we thought we would open the door to include comments from you if you care to be included in the book.By creating this book and offering it through our web site, we hope to generate more interest in the plant world and at the same time contribute25% of any net proceeds to the Iowa Native Plant Society.Now let me give you an example of what I am talking about. As a very young boy growing up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mtns. in Tenn., I was very much intrigued by all the plants around me. I wanted a slingshot in the worst way so I asked my Dad if he would make me one. As I watched him cut a limb from a huge tree with big leaves and many white blooms my excitement soared. He debarked the forked branch and trimmed it to fit my hand and then scored the upper part of the forks to attach the two strands of rubber inner tube which was left over from a Goodyear Double Eagle tire.He stained and varnished this master piece and handed it to me the next day as he said, "son be careful with that thing". From then on, I never forgot the name of that tree that brought so much fun into my life, the Catalpa.Won't you please consider sharing your story with us and join us in contributing to this fun and worthy venture? By participating, we assume we will have your permission to publish your comments and give you full credit..-- Howard Bright, President Ion Exchange, Inc.http://www.ionxchange.com/800-291-2143“Helping you create your own natural beauty”

Big Seminar 12

Some people find this hard to believe (but
it's arguably the single biggest success
story on the web)...

7 years ago a young man started an internet
business in the back bedroom of his home.

Sure he wanted to be mega successful but the
idea of generating millions was far from his
mind at the time.

He wanted to just start something.

So he ventured into a niche and began to plug
away and eventually developed a business
model that worked.

Not only did it "work", but it created a
$20,000,000/year business.

The crazy part about this story is the fact
that this person still works from "home".

He now has 80 employees but they all work

So how does one go from having no business
and no employees to building one of the most
successful online companies ever?

On September 16th, you'll find out:

Dr. Emoto and Ion Exchange invites you to participate this weekend in the 2008

A Message to you from Dr. Masaru Emoto.
Dear Friend,
Our planet Earth is called "Planet of Water". We have not found any other planet in this vast universe, which contains such a great amount of liquid water. It is said that our life was born in the primordial ocean of this planet, and water is a critical element for us to maintain our life form. All life could not exist without water.
Our precious and essential resource, however, has been seriously polluted all over the world.
Lake Baikal located in eastern Siberia is the largest and cleanest supply of freshwater on the planet. It has long been admired as the"Sacred Gem" and "Pearl of Siberia". It is said that Lake Baikal is the deepest lake on Earth and holds 20% of the world's freshwater supply, which is more than the amount of water of the Five Great Lakes in the North America combined. It is also said that humanity could survive at least for forty years solely on the water of Lake Baikal.
Lake Baikal is also known as the oldest lake on Earth and was considered to have been created about 25 million years ago. It contains 1500 endemic species, of which more than half cannot be found anywhere else in the world. In 1996, the United Nation declared Lake Baikal as a World Heritage Site.
Recently, I was notified that the water of this precious lake has become polluted. This is why we have decided to hold this year's Ceremony to Send Love and Gratitude to Water at Lake Baikal, so that the people of the world would pay attention to this precious water resource, and not take it for granted.
We have chosen Olkhon Island, the biggest island of Lake Baikal, as the primary site for our ceremony. This island has long been known as a sacred place for Siberian shamans. There is a small cape called Shaman Rock near Khuzhir.
We invite you to join us by sending your own sincere prayer of Love and Gratitude to the water of Lake Baikal, and the waters of the world.

We at Ion Exchange would like to invite you to join us in this ceremony visit Dr. Emotos site to see the video and learn more by clicking HERE
