Drought-Tolerant Plants for the Dog Days of Summer

Jen Kettell, Arborist and Horticultural Educator

1 Session: Wednesday, July 27, 6:30–8:30pm

When the dog days of summer hit, many of us are faced with water bans that limit our ability to water our lush gardens. We find ourselves carefully monitoring the water level in rain barrels and hoping for the next rainfall. What if we started to incorporate plants that just need less water? In this lecture, Jen Kettell will share the effects of drought on woody plants and describe plant adaptations for dealing with drought. Most importantly, she will introduce you to a new palette of plant material that will decrease your water use while increasing species diversity and beauty in your home landscape.
Fee $25 Arboretum member, $35 nonmember
