The Garden & Landscape Symposium of Western Pennsylvania showcases internationally renowned horticulture experts in a daylong educational event attracting more than 300 attendees.
Often overlooked as landscape plants because of their short season, spring ephemerals brighten up early spring landscapes and then fade to allow room for the later blooming plants to show off. We will also take a look at other spring blooming perennials that can be included in landscapes to expand the display season.
Beyond azaleas and rhododendrons, native shrubs offer a tremendous variety of spring bloom. Come learn about the diversity of shrubs available for the landscape, how to identify them and where to plant them.

Mums and asters brighten up the fall landscape but there are so many native options, why not include some of these in your landscaping as well? As we walk through the preserve we will discuss the many fall blooming perennials that not only enliven the home garden, but also provide essential late-season nectar for migrating pollinators.
Shade trees and flowering trees will be covered during this workshop; participants will learn about native trees for a variety of landscape situations. Enjoy walking the preserve as the colors change and examine the details of trees up close to help with identification in the field.
