1:30-2:30 p.m. – Plants for a Spectacular Late Summer Garden with Sally Cunningham
Many gardens peak in June and July–rightfully so, when our region is famous for its garden walks and tours. But gardeners ask regularly: What can I fill in for a better looking garden in August and September? You may not know how many perennials and even shrubs provide masses of flowers in the second half of the season. The reason: these plants don’t look very exciting when you’re doing the most shopping (and attending garden classes) in June. Cunningham will show you in pictures and in their pots the beautiful late bloomers you will love long after the daylilies are done. The presentation includes tips for their best placements and uses.
