Gardening dilemmas in times of climate change: Do I try to cultivate disappearing, endangered native plants, or do I pick winners that are more likely to survive the new hotter, dryer summers without constant watering?

@michiel That's exactly what my wife an I were talking about some hours ago and what we are still thinking about. Here in Willingen/Upland, it's the third very dry year in a row.

@ubo naturalist gardeners tend to want to recreate the historic natural ecosystem, and there's an undercurrent of nativism in that. The way things are going, drought-resistant plants are much more likely to survive on their own.
