APLD Bay Area SPEAKER SERIES:

Designing With Palms





Jason Dewees of Flora Grubb Garden and East West Trees will talk about his brand new book Designing With Palms and ways that palms can transform our landscapes.

"The idea behind the book is that the palm tree is so iconic that we can lose sight of the varied uses of palms for making lovely gardens and landscapes. My discussion ranges from palms' appeal to the senses and their use in creating garden styles, to basic information gardeners and designers need to know about the diverse palm family, including a portfolio of useful hardy palms and tropical staple species. In photographer Caitlin Atkinson's gorgeous photos for the book, readers will see why their beauty and diversity -- ranging from from delicate understory plants and hardy shrubs, to graceful trees and even bamboo-like clusters -- earn them a place in well-designed gardens throughout the warmer parts of the world -- including California."


This program = 1.5 APLD CEUs
