"Tall Narrow Trees"
Greg Paige, Director of Horticulture

  • Tuesday, April 2, 2024 – 1:00 pm2:00 pm

Columnar and fastigiate trees and shrubs are incredibly useful in the landscape for their ability to fill a vertical space while taking up barely any square footage. Whether you're looking to accent the entry to your home with containerized plants, fill a newly vacant space in your garden, or create an effective hedge or screen with almost immediate effect, practically every gardener can find a use for plants exhibiting this upright form. Join us for this Plant-lover's Tour as our Director of Horticulture, Greg Paige, takes us around the garden and shows off some of the best selections of Tall Narrow Trees for all your garden projects.
