Location:Main House Lecture Room 2
Instructor:Travis Beck
Fee: $25.00

Mt. Cuba Center has just completed the transformation of the South Garden to bring more interest to the Formal Gardens and highlight the use of native plants in a mixed border. Originally designed by Marian Coffin in 1950 as a walled garden flanked with beds of azaleas, the site has been reimagined with a nod to her aesthetic while bringing a modern approach to the traditional border: using all native plants. Travis Beck, Mt. Cuba Center's Director of Horticulture, will touch upon the historic aspects of the site, and then explain the process by which his team created the overall layout, selected the plants, and incorporated a season-long progression of bloom. Travis will lead a tour of the garden after his presentation. Be prepared to walk outdoors.
