Description

Presented by Dr. Richard L. Bitner

Perhaps no group of plants is so unimaginatively used in the home landscape than conifers. They are often casually chosen and improperly placed. This lavishly illustrated lecture will emphasize conifers as garden plants for use in the mixed border along with their value for screening, accents, and in containers. Whether you garden on several acres or a balcony, you will look at conifers in a new way and be primed to make better choices to provide year-round interest.

Dr. Richard L. Bitner is a retired 
anesthesiologist. He studied horticulture
at Longwood Gardens where for 20 years
he was a Plant Study Walk Instructor 
and a popular teacher of the Conifers,
the Deciduous Flowering Shrubs II, and
the Designing with Conifers certifcate
 courses. He teaches a course on conifers
 at the arboretum school of the Barnes 
Foundation. His column “Gardening
