Grasses and sedges add a layer of function and beauty to every garden. Prepare to be inspired as Hoffman Nursery’s Shannon Currey introduces you to plants that are not only striking but are terrific problem-solvers. They’re the new workhorses of the garden—helping control erosion, managing water runoff, and providing wildlife with shelter and food.
Grasses and grasslike plants are enjoying renewed interest from the New Perennial Movement and in progressive planting design for their versatility and resilience. Join us to discover which ones will work for you and where they do their best work.
This event is part of the Gardens’s Tuesday Gardening series. Whether you are just discovering your green thumb or you have two green hands, all gardening levels are welcome. View all Tuesday Gardening talks.
