Designing with Palms with Jason Dewees
Lecture | May 4 | 10 a.m.-12 p.m. | UC Botanical Garden
The palm tree is so iconic that we can lose sight of the varied uses of palms for making lovely gardens and landscapes. Jason Dewees, author of Designing with Palms and longtime friend of the UC Botanical Garden, will give a presentation with photos by Caitlin Atkison on the power of palms in garden design. In his book, he discusses palms' appeal to the senses and their use in creating garden styles, as well as basic information gardeners and designers need to know about the diverse palm family, including a portfolio of useful hardy palms and tropical staple species illustrated with photographer Caitlin Atkinson's gorgeous photos. Come see why palms' beauty and diversity -- from from delicate understory plants and hardy shrubs, to graceful trees and even bamboo-like clusters -- earn them a place in well-designed gardens throughout the warmer parts of the world -- including California. Lecture is followed by a walk through the collection.
