(Webinar) Focal Point Plants in Dry Gardens

Wednesday, June 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free – $20

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 2 June 2020 at 8am.  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 trees, palms and other focal point plants that are commonly available.
