Ceanothus: Gardening With a California Classic (203-224)

Presented by David Fross, founder of Native Sons Wholesale Nursery, Arroyo Grande, California. He is co-author of two recently released books: “California Native Plants for the Garden” and “Ceanothus” (with Dieter Wilken). He will take us from California to Europe and back again, viewing gardens displaying the many ways our California Lilacs can add to our own native landscapes. Drawing on his decades in native horticulture, Dave will show us his favorite varieties and cultivars ranging from mat-like groundcovers, gorgeous shrubs, to lovely small trees, all with a broad garden and landscape potential that will make you appreciate these beauties to an even greater degree. He will also show how many of our natives work well in combination with Ceanothus. Prior to and after his presentation David will sign his new book “Ceanothus”, a complete horticultural and botanical treatment of the genus aimed at both gardeners and botanists.
