Each garden is a unique combination of light, soil, moisture, as well as your time and effort. In this online presentation with Deborah Pilkington, owner (retired), The Mini Gardener, LLC; Durham County Extension Master Gardener volunteer, and Duke Gardens horticulture volunteer, she will introduce you to perennial plants that will bring seasonality, color and texture to your sunny garden. Direct sunlight for at least 6 hours is considered full sun. That's a very broad brushstroke and its useful to look at several site conditions together. Deborah will include some proven favorites and a few lesser known plants, discussing siting preferences, native status, interaction with pollinators and provide a bloom chart. The zoom session will not be recorded for distribution. Please see combination online lecture plus Gardens walk option listing below.

2 Thursdays online presentation, Sept. 23 & 30, from 5-6 p.m, followed by walks on Saturday, Oct. 2, 9:30 a.m Meet at the Doris Duke Center. Gardens Walk will be a Small Group program size to encourage interaction.

$23 for online presentation only; $33 for presentation and walks; free to Duke Gardens members and supporters at registration with member code. Registration at 919-668-1707,
