Tuesday, June 4, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm – Native Shrub Heroes


The New England Wild Flower Society and the Ecological Landscaping Association will co-sponsor Robin Wilkerson, Landscape Designer, in a lecture entitled Native Shrub Heroes on Tuesday, June 4, from 10 – 1 at Garden in the Woods in Framingham.  Learn about plants that offer color and form to our landscapes, but also provide nourishment and habitat for birds, mammals, and insects.  Find out which shrubs can replace any non-native invasive shrubs lingering in a back corner of your garden – burning bush, anyone?  Discover the reasons for going native in your plant selection, as Robin introduces you to a choice collection of beautiful and well-behaved indigenous plant.  Following the lecture and slide program, walk the Garden to see these shrubs in their early summer glory.  $40 for members of the sponsoring organizations, $48 for nonmembers.  Register on line at https://www.eventville.com/catalog/eventregistration1.asp?eventid=1010242.
