Great Perennial Grasses

Saturday, February 23, 2019 - 2:00 PM

Running Time: 2 hours

Ends At: 4:00 PM

Rocky Mountain Gardening Elective


No other group of plants responds to the strong light and wind of the west like ornamental grasses. Harking to our natural prairie and chaparral communities, grasses create a sense of place and are also important in the lifecycles of native creatures. Many grasses are highly sustainable, requiring little input of water, fertilizer, and care. Lauren will discuss both adapted exotic and native North American grasses and show inspirational examples of their incorporation in garden settings, including her passion, steppe- and prairie-style plantings.


Instructor: Lauren Springer Ogden is a long-time instructor at DBG and internationally known garden designer, author, and speaker. She designed several gardens at DBG, including the popular WaterSmart Garden, and most recently the new native Visitors Center gardens at Chatfield Farms.
