Join horticulturists, garden designers, and artists Allyson Levy and Scott Serrano for a tour of outstanding native trees and shrubs at Hortus Conclusus. They will share the magnificent diversity of American plants with participants, showcasing rare, highly ornamental, and in some cases edible varieties that deserve to be used widely in American gardens but are often not seen anywhere but botanical gardens and arboreta.

Hortus Arboretum & Botanical Gardens is a small botanical garden in the mid-Hudson valley now recognized by the Morton Arboretum’s international ArbNet program as a Level II-accredited arboretum. The gardens have an extensive collection of unusual edible and decorative plantings. By trialing both native and exotic plants, their goal is to push the limits of what can be successfully grown in Zone 6, and help fellow gardeners expand their knowledge base and incorporate some of these garden-worthy plants at home.

Advance registration is required and space is limited.
