Cedar Rapids Public Library - Downtown Library at Whipple Auditorium
 Join the Linn County Master Gardeners for the spring Creative Gardening series. April 11 will focus on Plants with Style. Gardeners need chic, sustainable, thriving plants for modern lifestyles. Why settle for lackluster gardens filled with dull, ho-hum plants? Plants, after all, are the very essence of fashionable gardening. In this spirited, provocative lecture, 20-something plantsman Kelly Norris calls for a garden revolution: out with boring plants and in with stylish alternatives that captivate and enthrall! A passionate horticulturist and lifelong gardener, Kelly is the ideal guide to the botanical riches available to today’s gardeners. In chapters on environment, structure, seasonal standouts, and plant combinations, he shines a spotlight on the A-list plants in every category — plants that will thrive, not merely survive. Along the way, he shows you how to forge a personal style in harmony with your garden’s setting and local environment. As Kelly puts its, “A garden is the best way to savor life on earth.” Let Plants with Style guide you to plants that will provide a richer, more fulfilling connection between you and your own patch of soil.
