Pernell Gerver's lecture and presentation entitled "Designing a Landscape for Winter Interest" focuses on how to create a garden with winter interest by combining perennials, trees, and shrubs in ways that provide subtle beauty throughout the winter months. Because so much of the gardening year is spent in winter conditions here in New England, it's important to have a landscape that offers interest during the long winter season. The program features trees with interesting bark, trees with distinct wintertime silhouettes, evergreens with interesting winter color, trees and shrubs that retain their berries through winter, and perennials that provide winter interest such as ornamental grasses, evergreen perennials, and perennials with attractive seed heads. Each tree, shrub, or perennial is illustrated and described in detail. The program shows how to combine the elements of winter interest for the most effect. By choosing trees, shrubs, and perennials that provide winter interest, the program shows you how to create a beautiful winter landscape of your own. Included is a question & answer session after the program as well as a plant sale of rare, hard-to-find, and useful plants and gardening products.
