The meeting begins at 10 with coffee and conversation. A brief business meeting and Show & Tell start at 10:30, followed by our program. Bring your own lunch.
For our morning program, Karen Perkins will run a workshop on how to propagate Epimediums. At 1:00 p.m., she will speak to us about the tantalizing diversity among Epimediums. Her nursery in Phillipston, MA (www.epimediums.com), offers the best selection of these spring-blooming perennials that excel in dry shade -- something we have in abundance in 2016! The graceful foliage of Epimediums, also known as bishops' caps, barrenworts, and fairy wings, often provide fall color, too.
