The Art of Gardening: Inspiration from Chanticleer

Thu, March 17, 2016, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

What is Chanticleer? R. William Thomas, executive director of this Pennsylvania-based garden, has described it as “a three-dimensional work of ever-changing art.” Others have pronounced Chanticleer as the most romantic, imaginative and exciting public garden in America.

Each of its many garden areas demonstrates ideas that are useful and inspirational to home gardeners. Chanticleer encourages us all to take delight in our gardens and introduces us to new ideas and plants. Please join us at this annual Taimi Anderson lecture.

Location: Doris Duke Center

Fee: free to Gardens members; $10 for the general public; $5 for students with I.D.

Thomas' book "The Art of Gardening: Design Inspiration and Innovative Planting Techniques from Chanticleer" will be available for purchase that evening, and Bill will sign books after the lecture.
