100 Tiarella 'Elizabeth Oliver' plants have been proposed as base plants to address an erosion problem on the left side of my house. I don't like this plant and I'm looking for a non-flowering native to replace it. Many flowering bushes and plants, as well as some grasses, have been proposed to help mitigate this erosion - I just don't want 100 flowering base plants in addition. I'd really like a conifer because, for some reason, I love conifers. if there are low-growing native conifers which are also erosion-protective, can you please name them for me - and if there are none, can give me some other green, non-flowering suggestions?
Also, do you how I can reach out to the Maryland Native Plant Association by email? I can only find a P.O. Box. The landscaper I'm working with is ready to begin my project but I'm holding it up to replace the Tiarella 'Elizabeth Oliver'. So I'm looking for as many suggestions as possible as soon as possible.
Thank you for any help you can offer,
Montgomery County Maryland
