October Friends First Friday Cool and Colorful Conifers – More Than Eye Candy

October 5, 2018, 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Cool and Colorful Conifers – More Than Eye Candy

$12 Non Members, $10 Members

When you hear the word ‘conifer’ do you immediately think of pine trees, Christmas trees and boring arborvitae? Do you think that Japanese Maples and flashy flowering trees and shrubs are the only answer to focal points in a garden? Are you interested in adding some color, texture and year- round interest to your garden (not to mention, low maintenance plants)? If you’ve answered ‘YES’ to any of these questions, then come join us for Friends First Friday on October 5th. Spend an hour with Barbie Colvin, learning about some beautiful, colorful conifers that are down-right happy to call the heat and humidity of the Southeast ‘home’. “Boring” is not an adjective you’ll use to describe these cone-bearing plants once you get acquainted with them. Includes a full breakfast. In order to give the caterer a correct number, registrations must be received no later than September 28, 2018.
