Whether providing a focal point, a backdrop or seasonal interest, shrubs can perform many roles in the landscape. Learn the basics to consider when selecting shrubs for our climate and for your site, and how to plant and maintain healthy shrubs. Recommended shrubs will include low maintenance native and adapted water-wise shrubs, most of which will be available at the HAS Gigantic Annual Spring Plant Sale May 17 – 19.

Cathie has gardened in Colorado Springs for over 25 years and has taught many others how to design and maintain landscapes and select plants adapted to growing in Southern Colorado. She loves to try new plants, and is always excited to find those that will survive and even thrive with benign neglect.

Presented by Pam Hamamoto

“Some you know, and some I’ll bet you don’t!” That’s what Pam is teasing us with for this informative presentation on shrubs for our area. She also promises that most of them are low-water-using while others are even no-water-using! And, best of all, most have been ordered for the big plant sale.
