Please note that this will be a live, webinar workshop (offered via Zoom) and not a lecture at the Garden.

This class is part of the Dry Garden Design Certificate program series as an Elective Course (Plant Selections).
When planning or planting a garden the first thing to consider are focal point plants: bold, dramatic specimens that draw the eye and anchor the composition. Focal point plants are one of the factors that sets the tone for the entire design and helps determine the other companion plantings. In this workshop, we will look at how to select these special plants for both aesthetics and conditions. We will also look at a wide range of drought tolerant focal point plants that are commonly available. In this presentation, the first portion will be presented by Brian Kemble, Curator, who will talk about successful focal point plants in the Ruth Bancroft Garden. The second portion will feature Cricket Riley, in-house Landscape Designer, who will talk about how to incorporate these dramatic specimens into a successful garden design.
