Join author and educator Eva Monheim for an educational lecture and discussion, moderated by PHS Vice President of Public Horticulture, Andrew Bunting. Each year, the range and selection of shrubs that can bloom throughout the year in our Delaware Valley gardens are growing. As breeders consider new and improved varieties of our natives and improved variations of non-native species, we can be guaranteed that more and more options will be opened to our plant palettes. A handout will be provided for your records.

About the Instructor
Eva Monheim is the author of Shrubs & Hedges: Discover, Grow, and Care for the World's Most Popular Plants, a book that was inspired by her years of teaching woody plants as a professor at Temple University in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture. A certified arborist and principal at VEE – Verdant Earth Educators, LLC, Eva and her colleagues train green industry professionals using sustainable management practices to help clients reach a carbon-neutral environment. Eva also teaches landscape management at the Barnes Arboretum at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and is a faculty member at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square.
