2021 TREE SYMPOSIUM - CONIFERS: FASTIGIATE & DWARF TYPES ... ANYTHING BUT DULL!

VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM

Robert La Hoff

Robert La Hoff is co-owner of Hall's Garden Center & Florist in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, a member of the Union County Board of Agriculture and The New Jersey Nursery and Landscape Association, as well as a Lifetime Member of the American Conifer Association. Most recently, Bob received The New Jersey Nursery and Landscape Association's Horticultural Professional of the Year Award for 2019.

Please join us as Bob focuses his discussion on fastigiate and dwarf conifers, talks about their usefulness in the landscape, cultural information and the distinction between fastigiate and columnar types. Bob will also dispel the myth that all conifers are green, he'll talk about specific cultivars and will help validate these choices in your garden. Common mistakes using larger plant materials will be covered as well as why knowing botanical nomenclature is important to good decision making. Stories of travel, friendship and personal connections to these plant choices will hopefully inspire you to go out and search for your next favorite conifer!

This program is eligible for 1.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEUs.
