Plantsmen's Tour

Tom & Kathy Rucker Roof Terrace Container Gardens "Tender Perennial Madness"
Todd Lasseigne, Ph.D.

August 27, 2004 (Friday) – 5:30 PM–7:00 PM

"To be (hardy), or not to be (hardy): that is the question." As even the Bard could appreciate, there exists a plethora of plants that are suitable for use in North Carolina gardens but that are not cold hardy. Some of these are former houseplants, now recognized as superb landscape plants; while others are heretofore unknown. Join Todd as we highlight some of our recent success stories, as well as newly acquired tender perennials that are suited to our climate and gardens.
