Friends of the Arboretum Lecture
3, 2003 (Friday)
York Auditorium, Ruby C. McSwain Education Center, JCRA
Bob Lyons, Director
"Bordering on Insanity"
What would have possessed someone to consider renovation and replanting of the enormous perennial border at the JC Raulston Arboretum? Was the fortune in the cookie? Come hear and see how dinner and a conversation at a Chinese restaurant led to the mammoth restoration efforts in 1999 to redefine and redesign the border. A photographic timeline will be presented to document the process and illustrate its subsequent evolution, paying special attention to selected species found within one of the most notable and captivating mix of perennials found anywhere!
