Ornamental grasses featured in garden club series
Camden — Ornamental grasses can be tall and stunning or front-of-the-border low. They come in solid green, striped, rosy, silver, and nearly black, and occasionally sport fluffy seed heads that could pass for flowers. They are the current favorites of Hammond Buck of Plants Unlimited in Rockport, who has planted them abundantly in his own landscape at home and now and then throws an open-garden day to show them off.
“Buck,” as he prefers being called, will talk about all sorts of ornamental grasses at the fourth program in the Camden Garden Club’s Winter Horticulture Series, csponsored by the Camden Library — Tuesday, Feb. 18. The program will start at 10 a.m. in the library’s Picker Room. Everyone is welcome.
This mid-winter pick-me-up runs every year for five Tuesdays, from the end of January all through February. The final program, on Feb. 25, will be Rebecca Jacobs on “Invasive Plants.”
