A Walk in the Winter Garden

February 17, 2008 (Sunday) – 1:00:01 PM–4:00 PM

Join us at the JC Raulston Arboretum for A Walk in the Winter Garden as we celebrate the winter season. Activities begin at 1:00 PM with a Friends of the Arboretum Lecture titled "The Winter Garden" presented by Dick and Judith Knott Tyler, Pine Knot Farms. Tours are scheduled for 2:00 PM, 2:30 PM, and 3:00 PM and will highlight many of the Arboretum's magnificent plants at their peak during the winter months including Japanese flowering apricots, witchhazels, hellebores, conifers, hollies, winter honeysuckles, and many others. The JC Raulston Arboretum and Pine Knot Farms will each offer a selection of plants that look their finest in winter for sale during the event.

Self-guided tour brochures will be made available at the Arboretum throughout February for those unable to attend the guided tours.
