Tour the gardens at Landcraft Garden Foundation with designer Dennis Schrader—an expert on combining and growing tropical plants in temperate zones. The co-author of, Hot Plants for Cool Climates and Extraordinary Leaves, will highlight exceptional plants in the garden that lend themselves to transporting the viewer to much warmer climates but can also thrive in the humid summers of our region. As he writes, "the aim is to create a riotous exuberance of growth and brilliant color in the context of restrained abandon. Here more is better because it's an exotic, wild look that is the hallmark of tropical-style gardens." Be whisked away to paradise where you'd least expect —and without booking a flight. Learn howthe inclusion of just a few choice plants could transform your garden into something extraordinary and exotic. Dennis will offer tips and tricks for the care of rare plants and overwintering tender tropical plants outdoors and indoors.
