Gems in the Garden: Tree Characteristics that Add Grace to Your Landscape
Alex Niemiera, Professor in the School of Plant and Environmental Sciences at Virginia Tech and self-proclaimed tree lover, has been teaching woody landscape plant courses for over three decades. He will present a palette of woody plants that range from the showy to the subtle, including species commonly overlooked by the passerby. In addition to aesthetics, he will address other important ways these plants function in the landscape.
