September 2016 Faded Glory: The Autumn Garden

Wednesday, September 28 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

A recent trend in garden design has been interest in the “Autumn Garden”. This is partly because the floral displays we plant in the Midwest for stunning spring and summer effect fade and wither away at the first kiss of frost. Our yards then become useless as extensions of our home with no visual interest through our long winter season. Neither autumn nor winter needs to be dreary and there are more ways to punch it up with more than mums. Reiman Gardens’ Director Ed Lyon will demonstrate plant materials that not only define and create a spectacular fall garden, but will extend winter interest as well. If your autumn garden has the drabs, find out how to jazz it up!
