Shade Plants featured at the Summer Gardening Fair

An annual tradition here at the Botanical Garden, the Summer Gardening Fair is a free, fun and friendly gathering of plant enthusiasts sharing ideas, plants and plant-related items. It is always a great opportunity to meet experts from the local horticultural community and get the right plant for your unique gardening project. This sale will be held at the Arbor next to the Garden Bookstore as part of the Summer Gardening Fair and will feature shade plants.
