Winning Garden Performances
Gardens Stars & Best Supporting Perennials
Wed, Feb 20 at 5:45 pm / Hood Room
Think of the garden as a stage. YOU are the director. Every tree, shrub, and perennial has a role to play in the overall “production.” While starring roles may come and go with the seasons, the supporting actors are essential to the ongoing success of the “show.” Beautiful gardens have pretty leading ladies, dashing actors, a great supporting cast, and outstanding visual effects. This presentation showcases inspiring performances by gorgeous color combinations, thoughtful plant pairings, and designers “tricks of the trade.” Handouts will list the featured plants and additional stylish plant pairings.
