Jewels of the Garden: California Native Bulbs, Corms, and Rhizomes
September 25 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
California is blessed with one of the world’s largest and most diverse array of bulb species. This talk by Nancy Gilbert, Redbud Chapter’s Horticulture Chair, will focus on our local region’s native bulbs, corms and rhizomes, as well as very garden-worthy ones from other areas of California. The presentation will explain and illustrate various types of geophytes and their strategies for survival, how to successfully garden with our native bulbs, and their ethnobotanical and ecological importance. The show includes a native bulb bloom calendar, with spectacular photos.
Socializing and member meeting 6:30 pm; Lecture 7 to 9 pm
