Lecture – Shady Characters: Ferns, Flowers and Fun for Colorado Shade Gardens
May 23, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
With the support of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and in line with the Denver Botanic Gardens’ mission of connecting people with plants, DBG is excited to bring you our annual lecture and workshop series April – October.
Having a shady garden doesn’t mean you’re limited to growing impatiens and periwinkle. Discover 50 die-hard perennials that thrive in Denver shade gardens. We start with an hour-long walk to key shady spots at Denver Botanic Gardens to see how the plants look in the ground. Next, we divide and pot a few choice plants to take home. Finally, we look at images of gardens that have achieved the impossible: year-round beauty in the shade!
Tour and Talk led by Panayoti Kelaidis
