Past Event January 2018 - Palms: They Are Not Just For the Tropics Anymore! with guest speaker Janice Swab

Longtime gardeners in this area may remember when no palms were seen in landscapes.  Now we see them frequently.  What has changed and what palms are the most likely suspects for your gardens?  The presentation will answer some of these questions.

Dr. Swab is a botanist and professor emerita of biology at Meredith College.  Her interests are in plant studies and travel for plant study and teaching.  She enjoys being a member of the Hidden Hill Garden Club and in retirement continues to teach as an adjunct at Meredith. 

Luncheon Menu:  Classic Caesar, Baked Flounder, Buttered New Potatoes, Sugar Snap Peas, rolls, tea, coffee, and member-supplied dessert. Vegetarian and Gluten Free lunches also available.
