Hydrangeas Presentation by Lyndon Penner, Tea Ceremony and Taiko Drumming

Sunday, July 29, 2018

Time(s): 10:00AM - 7:30PM

Welcome back Lyndon Penner our Horticulturalist to Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden.  This presentation will focus on......

Hydrangeas- Called ajisai in Japan, hydrangeas are currently the number one selling shrub in North America. These are plants that like a sheltered, moist location but don't we live in a dry, windy climate? We've prepared a very informative and entertaining presentation for you detailing which hydrangeas you should be considering for your Alberta garden and where you should be planting them! Learn how the Japanese have long regarded them as a symbol of summer and have honoured them in their art, literature, and poetry. Hydrangeas are becoming much more widely known and new cultivars are appearing every year- want to find out which ones will perform well for you and survive our tough winters? If so, you'll not want to miss this class! 

Come after work and sit in our Pavilion and listen to Lyndon as he presents into the evening. 

Green Tea will be available after the talk!
