“Planting for the Future,” a lecture by Kelly D. Norris, author of Plants with Style: A Plantsman's Choices for a Vibrant, 21st-Century Garden

Cylburn Arboretum Association

Kelly D. Norris, a horticulturist, plant breeder, and plantsman, will be delivering a lecture on “Planting for the Future.”

The owner of Rainbow Iris Farm and the horticultural manager of the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, Kelly Norris has garnered national acclaim for the way in which he shares his love and knowledge of plants – an appealing blend of technical information and personal stories.

In his spirited book, Plants with Style: A Plantsman’s Choices for a Vibrant, 21st-Century Garden, he calls for a garden revolution: out with the boring plants and in with newcomers that can make jaws drop and pulses quicken!

A passionate horticulturist and lifelong gardener, Kelly is the ideal guide to the botanical riches available to today’s gardeners. He likes to shine a spotlight on the A-list plants in every category, plants that will thrive, not merely survive—fabulous natives that revel in difficult soil, trees and shrubs with sublime bark and structure, unusual seasonal gems, and more.


No registration required. For more information call: 410-821-5561 or e-mail programs@mdhorticulture.org. Admission is free for HSM members with a current membership card.  https://mdhorticulture.org/programs-events/lecture-series/
