VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM
In May of 2013 the Friends travelled to Ireland to visit some of the most beautiful gardens in the southern part of the emerald isle. Join Judy Snow, past president of the Friends, for a reprise of that memorable trip.
Well-known public gardens like Powerscourt, Bantry House and the National Botanical Gardens will be featured, along with lesser known gems and a sample of private gardens. From castles and grand estates to cottages and ruins, and from towering Rhododendrons and South American trees to Mediterranean succulents and petite rock garden specimens, we'll sample them all.
The program is free for Members and only $10.00 for non-Members.
Click on the photo of Bantry House to register. The Zoom link to attend will be sent to you on the day of the program to the email you use to register.
This week we're featuring Calycanthus floridus (Carolina Allspice), a Cornus florida flower (Flowering Dogwood), Primula denticulata (Drumstick Primrose), Wisteria sinensis (Chinese Wisteria) and the soft, green, new growth of Picea abies cv. Inversa (Weeping Norway Spruce).
