Lose the Lilacs:  Plant These Native Woodies Instead

Marc Radell

Master Gardener Emeritus, Penn State Extension


In many ways, woody shrubs are the backbone of the home garden. They don’t require as much room as trees or as much maintenance as flower beds, and they provide year-round structure to your garden design.  This class will provide a detailed look at difference native shrubs that provide a variety of ecological benefits, including flowers, colorful foliage, edible fruit, and wildlife habitat, in a wide range of landscaping situations.

Wednesday, February 3

1—2:00 p.m.

Members:  $10 / Non-members:  $15
