Hosta Companions

with Tammy Borden

Monday • March 28 • 7:00 pm

Tammy is a long-time Master Gardener and Executive Vice President of the American Hosta Society.

 For years, there were few options to bring interest to the shade garden. No longer do gardeners need to choose between the foliage for shade and flowers for sun. Many great varieties of hostas and companion plants, both new and old, can help create focal points and bring texture and color to the hosta garden. Enjoy a presentation with lots of colorful images and ideas for incorporating something new into the garden.
