You won’t find any plants better adapted for growin in pots than succulents.  Mostly native to arid regions, succulents store water in their fleshly leaves, stems, and roots, enabling them to resist drought.  This means they don’t need to be fussed over with frequent watering, so you can go ahead and enjoy a weeklong summer vacation without giving them a second thought.  Join us at the library branch to learn more about Succulents for your garden.

Heavenly Hellebores

These aristocratic, evergreen plants bring an architectural quality to the shady garden. Most bloom in early winter in mild climates and in late winter or very early spring where the ground freezes hard.

Resistant to both deer and voles, these plants are long-lived and provide exquisite blooms at a time when flowers are a scarce delight. Master Gardeners will help share the background of the Genus and the differences between Lenten roses, Christmas roses and more.

Presenters are John & Sandy Dickerson
