Friends of the Arboretum Lecture

Part of A Walk in the Winter Garden

"Beyond Dwarf Alberta: Conifers for the Smaller Garden"
Mark Weathington, Assistant Director and Curator of Collections

  • Sunday, February 15, 2009 – 1:00 pm2:30 pm

While they are certainly majestic, few of us have room soaring cedars and large spruces. That doesn't mean our gardens have to be needle-free. Conifer selections ranging from tiny muffins to larger shrubs add weight and a sense of permanence to the landscape. We'll explore a variety of conifers suitable to the south for all types of garden conditions from sun to shade.


In addition to the regularly scheduled A Walk in the Winter Garden tours, tour guides will be ready to lead tours when the FOA Lecture concludes.

Advance registration is not available.
