Fall Color: Beyond Mums and Burning Bushes
Our September speaker is Patricia Hill and her presentation is entitled “Fall Color: Beyond Mums and Burning Bushes”. There are extraordinarily colorful native trees, shrubs, grasses, and perennials that bloom in the fall, September through November. Come hear about all the wonderful options for fall planting in Northern Illinois.
Patricia has been a Garden Designer since 1982 and now designs only with plants native to our region. She compiled her designs, photos, and notes into a book, Design Your Natural Midwest Garden and uses this material in her PowerPoint program. She also writes a weekly blog about gardening with native plants, available at her website, www.naturalmidwestgarden.com.
