How to add drama to your design with "Garden Extroverts", a talk with Robert Clyde Anderson, Sat., Mar. 30, 2pm. Free admission

Join us for a talk with gardening expert Robert Clyde Anderson, who'll demonstrate how to grow drama in your garden using contrasting foliage sizes and textures to achieve bold effects. Robert will introduce you to some underused annuals, seasonal tropicals and hardy perennials that will make a splash with their over-scale, luxuriant and dramatic foliage. He'll also provide tips and techniques for how to create exuberant and impactful container plantings and groupings for display on terraces, decks and poolside.
