Digging Deeper: Amazing Annuals—Usual, Unusual, and Where to Find Them

Annuals, long considered garden fillers, when properly used can become the standouts of both shady and sunny gardens. Rare and not-so-rare annuals contribute sparkle and variety to both the perennial garden and the woods garden. Copperheads, an historic Greek Revival house with views over the Berkshire foothills, has a variety of garden rooms and woodland walks that rely on annuals for continuous color and structure. Amy Pelletier Clark, landscape gardener and garden designer at Copperheads, will lead a walk through the gardens, talking about the annuals along the way. Guests will learn the best care and placement of standout annuals. Amy Pelletier Clark has curated many distinguished gardens of the Hudson Valley. She currently serves on the board of the Beatrix Farrand Garden at Bellefield. A plant list, plant sources list, and seed packets will be provided.

Registration is required and space is limited.
