Description

Wednesday, August 16, 2017, 8:30am-12:00pm

From conservation landscapes to fine gardens, our local flora plays a vital role in habitat preservation, landscape functions, aesthetics and regional character.  In the time since David Douglas' plant expeditions in the early 1800's, some 240 species of our west coast native plants have been mainstays in cultivated gardens in Britain and Europe.  This class will explore the cultivation and design uses of different types of Puget Sound native plants and native plant cultivars in a variety of landscape settings and styles.  Valuable information on gardening near and preserving mature native trees will also be covered.

Taught by Christina Pfeiffer, Horticulture Consultant

Cost: $65
