Beautiful Rare Palms for Bay Area Gardens (212-1802)
with palm expert Jason Dewees

Saturday, June 16th, 9:00am - 12:00pm

SORRY:  THIS PALM CLASS WITH JASON DEWEES FOR 06/16 IS POSTPONED!


Jason Dewees, palm expert at Flora Grubb Gardens in San Francisco and longtime SFBG volunteer, discusses new plantings of rare Andean and Himalayan palms at the Botanical Garden. Though only five common species dominate palm plantings in the Bay Area, nearly 200 species can be grown in varied local microclimates, ranging from tiny understory plants and bamboo-like shrubs to towering landmark trees. Some of these species are uniquely adapted to our mild, cool summer climate, and are the envy of gardeners in hotter climates. Come explore the many contributions that palms can make in your garden: light, animated, acoustically pleasing canopy; bold, architectural foliage; quick, dramatic vertical effects, informal hedges; understory in moist or dry shade; keynotes for containers; as well as fascinating flowers, fruit, foliage, color and texture for floral design and near-scale appreciation.
