Color is the first thing noticed in the garden and is integral to good garden design. Please join us for an insightful, inspiring, and interactive afternoon as we examine the use of color in the garden. Daniel Mount will give us a quick review of the fundamentals of color theory, and then we'll sharpen our perceptions and strengthen our understanding of the complexities of garden color through lecture and activities. We’ll cement these lessons by forming ad hoc plant combinations using Swanson’s Nursery’s stock to illustrate various color strategies.
