Friends Lecture Specifics

"Flowers of the Frost Season"
Doug Ruhren, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden
1:00 PM

With such a wealth of plants of winter-interest no garden need be dull in the winter months. Yet gardening in a mild climate means we have it even better in that we can have plants in bloom all winter long and don't have to be satisfied with just colorful twigs and evergreen foliage. This lecture will highlight a wide range of plants that bloom through the months of the year when frost is likely.
