Title:Re imagining the Perennial Palette

 

Kelly’s lecture titled, Re imagining the Perennial Palette is a thorough review of popular perennials, including new varieties making waves with designers for their beauty, function, and performance.  

 

With all the interest in the New Perennial Movement and a market shift towards sustainable gardening, a new palette of plants has emerged at the intersection of form and function. Perennials used in this style of gardening thrive in social arrangements, translating their native ecologies into beautiful communities of plants that ultimately require fewer resources and incorporate more diversity into the modern landscape.  While many old favorites continue to have a place in these contemporary designs, many underappreciated perennials, particularly natives, have a new context in which to be appreciated.

 

Kelly will highlight several examples of sustainable, plant-driven gardens from across the country, comparing and contrasting them to the wild circumstances that inspired them, while introducing the audience to the perennials within them.
