Fall is a great time for adding new plants to your garden. Join Master Gardener Marianne Mueller for a talk about the Arboretum All-Stars, a collection of 100+ plants recommended for the Bay Area by the UC Davis Arboretum and the Master Gardener Program. The list includes 40+ perennials, 40+ shrubs, 4 vines, 5 ground covers and 9 trees. Arboretum All-Stars are easy to grow, easy to maintain, suited to our climate, low-water, attractive year-round, and beneficial for wildlife. Many plants in the collection are California native plants. Marianne will discuss plants from each category (perennials, shrubs, vines, ground covers, trees), how to plant and maintain them, and tips for plant groupings.

Sign up at the reference desk or call 408-615-2900.  Walk-ins welcome.
