NPA lecture with Susie Egan
Wonderful Plants With Winter Interest
Sunday, January 13, 2013 - 1 pm at CUH
Members free, Nonmembers $10 at the door
Sure, Safeway is selling those pansies and primroses in January, but there has to be more we can do than that. Susie Egan is coming to enlighten us about plants that will keep our gardens appealing to all our senses throughout the year's dreariest months.
Susie is a Master Gardener, landscape designer, garden coach, member of many local, national and international horticultural societies, garden writer and frequent speaker in the Puget Sound area, all the while managing to maintain a two acre display garden and nursery in Woodinville.
Many NPA members are already familiar with her fervent interest in native and woodland shade plants, but are you aware that you can see more types of trilliums at her Cottage Lake Gardens than in any other place in the world? In her quest to establish a National Garden Collection of them, she has amassed 45 of the 47 known species, and we can guess that she's hot on the trail of the last two.
What better way to spend a most-likely-gray Sunday afternoon than enjoying this talk? In fact, why not bring along a friend or two? This event would make a splendid treat.
