Tony Avent, Plant Delights Nursery at Juniper Level Botanic Gardens
April 16, 2009 (Thursday) – 7:30 PM–9:00 PM
Gardening with woody lilies and their companion plants can be painful, yet enjoyable and rewarding. Most of these plants are native to areas with very low rainfall and high temperatures, yet many of them thrive in the Southeast. If you've ever wanted your own desert garden or are just looking for some fantastic drought-resistant plants, Tony's FOA Lecture is for you.
