Crossing the Borders: Garden Worthy Plants from North America | July Garden Lecture

Our July garden lecture series, Saturday, July 13th, features Adrienne Roethling, Garden Curator of Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden, presenting “Crossing the Borders: Garden Worthy Plants from North America.” This talk will continue our garden focus on great plants for home gardeners and professional gardens alike!

She worked there for eight years, maintaining the seven-acre garden. She then moved to the triad in 2008 to become the Curator for Paul J.

She has written for Fine Gardening Magazine, the Greensboro News & Record, Yadkin Valley Magazine, Seasons at Ciener, and the Martha Stewart Living online Blog.
