New!Living Color for the Garden
Thursdays in May (2, 9, 16, 23, 30) from 1pm – 4pm
Come join Charmain Giuliani for a rare course offering of color theory for gardens. This course will help the gardener and designer select and plant combinations of annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees commonly used in California. Learn to recognize commonly used color combinations of plants and the secrets of their success or failure. The sessions will cover the process and theories of the color wheel and other Colorimetric systems and ultimately their use in the garden through lectures, slides, and workshops using living plants. Gain an understanding of the steps, materials, and maintenance necessary for continuing color throughout the year. Space is limited, register early.
