Drama Queens:  Dark Beauties for your Garden

Presentation by Lesley Parness  (

Lesley Parness, retired Superintendent of Horticultural Education at the Morris County Park Commission, will help us understand how to use black-hued plants for maximum impact.  Over 75 dark beauties, including annuals, perennials, vines, trees and shrubs are featured in this compendium of powerful plants. Lesley will cover their habit and culture, and will provide a useful plant list.  To create rhythm, punctuate place, outline areas and focus the eye, nothing works like black. Keep the drama out of your house, and in the garden.
