You’re invited to a whole new world of gardening with conifer authority Gary Wittenbaugh. See how the color, texture and form of conifers add year round beauty and contrast to gardens and landscapes. Learn about conifers that can be used as fast growing screens, tiny buns that have unusual shapes and textures, and distinctive forms that can be used to make living sculptures.  Come and explore the world of conifers as Gary begins indoors and then leads a guided walk outdoors among the Arboretum’s conifers.

Focus: the Arboretum’s fabulous tree collection
