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 is growing. As breeders consider new 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.
