0314SG Creating a Woodland Garden – Native Perennials and Shrubs for Use in Shade

Postponed due to weather. New date Tuesday, April 4

Tuesday, March 14

7-8:30 pm

Finding plants that will not only grow in shade, but thrive there, can be a challenge. A large percentage of our native flora has evolved to grow in the forest understory, and these plants are thus perfectly adapted to grow, flower and multiply in shade. Discover the great diversity of native perennials and shrubs that you can use in these challenging shady spots, and learn how you can create natural plant communities that will provide habitat for birds and other wildlife. Instructor Jim Engel is owner of White Oak Nursery in Canandaigua, specializing in native trees and shrubs.
