If you are looking for something other than hostas or ferns to liven up your shade garden, join Dennis Milliken as he returns to Merryspring on Tuesday, March 6 at 12:00 noon for a talk on shade perennials. From hardy Actaea to exotic Tricyrtis, learn about a variety of plants that not only survive, but can thrive in the shade. Milliken’s favorites will highlight his powerpoint presentation as he offers helpful tips and tricks on planting these beautiful perennials.
