Landscape Plants for North Carolina Gardens: Fall

Wed, October 18, 2017, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Course meets for 4 sessions

Expand your palette of plants with Katie Rose Levin. The fall program focuses on plants that shine in autumn, along with late-blooming perennial flowers.

Each season this class covers another group of approximately 60 plants suitable for North Carolina gardens. You will learn identification skills and design use, and learn about the culture of each plant.   Each student receives a digital portfolio of plant photos. Class time is primarily spent outdoors.

She has a double master's from Duke University in forestry and environmental management, and after graduating she managed trees on Duke's campus for years. She currently directs the consulting division for Leaf & Limb, co-leads the Durham Tree Advocates, and spends as much time in gardens as daylight allows.
