Exploring Native Edibles + Ornamentals with Hortus Conclusus

with Allyson Levy and Scott Serrano (Hortus Conclusus)

Cost: $10, Free to Members.

Join horticulturists, garden designers, and artists Allyson Levy and Scott Serrano for a visual presentation of edible native trees and shrubs all grown at Hortus Arboretum & Botanical Gardens. They will share the magnificent diversity of American plants, showcasing rare, highly ornamental, edible varieties that deserve to be used widely by backyard gardeners.

Hortus Arboretum & Botanical Gardens is a small botanical garden in the mid-Hudson valley now recognized by the Morton Arboretum’s international ArbNet program as a Level II-accredited arboretum. The gardens have an extensive collection of unusual edible and decorative plantings. By trialing both native and exotic plants, their goal is to push the limits of what can be successfully grown in Zone 6, and help fellow gardeners expand their knowledge base and incorporate some of these garden-worthy plants at home.
