Native Plants for Four-Season Gardening With the New England Wildflower Society
Monday, February 4, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
By carefully choosing what trees, shrubs, and perennials to plant, we can have something of interest even in the coldest winter months! Wandflower, Galax urceolata, with its glossy foliage, and Ilex opaca, with its rich green American holly, are just a few of the plants that brighten the Garden throughout the year. Don’t underestimate the charms of decorative bark, evergreen foliage, fruits, and dried leaves and flower stalks dusted with snow. Learn about some of the best native species, with an emphasis on fall and winter interest, and discuss their use in garden design to ensure that your garden framework works just as well in the “off-season.”
$26 Members, $32 Non-members
Light refreshments will be served.
LOCATION: Living Room
