The Selection, Design and Maintenance of Appropriate Ornamental Shrubs for the Perennial Border

Jamie Blackburn, Curator of Woodland Gardens at the Atlanta Botanical Garden,
and a favorite GPPA speaker, will share information about the use and care of shrubs in our gardens. He will discuss plants used for foliage and stem color, plants that flower on new wood, shrubs that repeat flower and have multi-season interest. Most importantly he will give tips on shrub maintenance.
