(Webinar) Essential Agave & Friends in Dry Gardens

Saturday, July 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

$15.00 – $20.00

Please note that this will be a live, webinar workshop (offered via Zoom) and not a lecture at the Garden. After registration (see below), you will receive further instructions from the Program Director prior to the workshop date. Registration will close on 24 July 2021 at 8am.  This class is part of the Dry Garden Design Certificate program series and is an Elective Course (Horticulture).

With bold, eye-catching features, agaves can be a wonderful addition in dry garden designs, whether as an accent or companion plant.  In this presentation, the first portion will be presented by Brian Kemble, Curator, who will talk about successful agaves and similar plants like Bromeliaceae (bromeliad family) and yucca specimens in the Ruth Bancroft Garden.  The second portion will feature Cricket Riley, in-house Landscape Designer, who will talk about how to incorporate a variety of agaves and friends into a successful garden design.
