Over 20 inquiring gardeners listened to Sara Monte introduce our dogwood, ginkgo, and maple collection. Folks were pleasantly surprised to see the kousa dogwoods blooming. Looks like they'll be holding flowers [bracts] into June.
Several club members selected small maples for their garden projects. The hybrids of Acer circinatum were especially popular. People like the idea that circinatums are a native. With names like Sunglow and Sunny Sister you know the apricot and yellow tones will brighten up a shady spot!
