The registration period has closed for this event.
Join the N.C. Unit of The Herb Society of America and the North Carolina Botanical Garden for the fourth in a series of lectures on herbs and native plants featuring nationally recognized speakers. Holly Shimuzu has been Director of the U. S. Botanic Garden in Washington D.C. since 2000, was the first curator of the National Herb Garden there, and has worked in gardens in many parts of the world. She charts a plan for you to bring fragrant plants into your garden. Holly looks at the best fragrant plants, from roses to linden trees to veviter roots, as well as how to use and enjoy the fragrances. Variations and complexities of plant fragrances range according to the variety, season, and time of day and often have direct relationships to the plant’s pollinator. Holly will focus on the achievements of the ideal garden of fragrance. Fee: $10 (Free for Herb Society and ncbg members).
