Cone-bearing Seed Plants
Washington Square Library
1244 Portage Street, Kalamazoo
Bill Snyder and Paul Surian from Blue Horizon Nursery will be with us to share their abundant knowledge of all things conifer. These wonderful plants come in all shapes and sizes giving our gardens "bones" and color year round. We're talking about cedars, Cypresses, firs, junipers, larches, pines, redwoods, pruces and yews. There is much to learn, but fortunately for us no tests!
Washington Square Library is on the west side of Portage Street between Lake Street and Stockbridge Avenue. Ample parking is available on the north side of the building. The meeting is held on the lower level. The small elevator is located just inside the front entrance.
