Horticultural Society of Maryland: Joseph Tychonievich: Rock Gardening: Reimagining a Classic Style

Vollmer Center Auditorium, Cylburn Arboretum

Inspired by the tiny plants and dramatic, rocky landscapes found on mountain tops, rock gardening uses a range of unusual, small plants in combination with beautiful stones to create miniaturized landscapes. This approach to gardening is water-wise, perfect for containers, small gardens, and for gardeners interested in exploring a whole new group of plants. Tychonievich, author of Rock Gardening: Reimagining a Classic Style, will discuss the basic principles of creating rock gardens and suggest easy-to-grow rock garden plants to get you started.

A life-long gardener and lover of plants, Joseph earned his degree in horticulture from Ohio State University, worked at specialty rare plants nurseries in Michigan and Japan, and was named by Organic Gardening Magazine as one of “…six young horticulturists who are helping to shape how America gardens.” He is the author of Plant Breeding for the Home Gardener (2013), Rock Gardening: Reimagining a Classic Style (2016) and is the editor of The Rock Garden Quarterly. Currently Joseph lives and gardens with his husband and an adorable black cat in eastern Virginia.

Come early to check out the plant raffle and stay for light refreshments after the lecture.

Members are required to show a current membership card for free admission to lectures. Guests of members also receive free admission. Admission for non-members is $10 at the door. For more information call: 410-821-5561, or email programs@mdhorticulture.org
