Event Description:

Joanne Walkovic Memorial Lecture for the Hardy Plant Society/Mid-Atlantic Chapter, our co-sponsors for this event. A reception will follow.

Learn from the ever-knowledgeable and entertaining Richard Hawke, plant evaluation manager at the Chicago Botanic Garden (CBG), as he presents a variety of four-star plants, including new selections and old favorites, from nearly 25 years of comparative trials. He will also discuss the Garden’s green roof trials of native and exotic plants. CBG evaluates hundreds of plants in comparative trials every year, including perennials, shrubs, and vines. The Garden’s Plant Evaluation Program has been recommending superior garden plants to home gardeners and the green industry since 1989. In 2008, it received the Award for Program Excellence from the American Public Garden Association. Results of the trials are published in Plant Evaluation Notes and in gardening magazines such as Fine Gardening and The American Gardener.
