Answer: In my experience, plants like Red Osier Dogwood and Meadowsweet are ideal erosion control plants that also provide color and structure to a setting. Sedges and dwarf evergreens are other options. I can steer you towards a source for plant material -- Prairie Moon Nursery. They specialize in native plants, and have expertise helping gardeners choose the correct plants for various habitats. Contact them at ph# 507/452-1362, or e-mail email@example.com. Another option is to contact your state's native plant society for suggestions: The Michigan Botanical Club, 7951 Walnut Ave., Newaygo, MI 49337, ph# 616/652-2036.
