Horticultural Lecture #3
William Cullina: What do you mean, I’m Not a Perennial? Native Shrubs and Small Trees for Perennial Companionship
Wednesday, March 19, 6PM
New York School of Interior Design, 170 East 70th Street, Manhattan
The final lecture of the season is offered by William Cullina, an award-winning author and Executive Director of Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Most folks are familiar with the concept of the mixed border-perennials, annuals, shrubs and evergreens blended together in a seamless composition year-round. It sounds good in theory, but transplanting this concept into a real garden is more difficult than it seems. Cullina profiles his favorite 50 “natural mixers,” focusing on native woody plants and how to manage them to bring form, texture, color and wildlife to the perennial garden.
Lecture guests are invited to join us for a special wine reception and book signing with Bill Cullina immediately following the lecture. Copies of his books will also be available for sale.
