Foliage First!

/
  • Overview
  • Join garden designer and author Karen Chapman for a presentation and mini show and tell. What happens to your yard when it’s not in flower? Does it suddenly become a sea of green? With the right foliage palette, your garden could shine with color and texture year-round. In Gardening with Foliage First, designer Karen Chapman offers more than 100 plant combinations that start with intriguing foliage schemes, then layer in flowers, berries, bark, and other finishing touches. The result? Tapestries of inspiration you can take directly into your garden, and designs that flourish in every season and climate. If you’re happy with what you have, you can stop here. Or you can add more elements that pick up the color echo of an existing design component. As mentioned on the book cover, this could be flowers, bark, berries, or even man-made pieces such as garden art. Karen’s hot-off-the-press book Fine Foliage will be available for purchase/signing after the talk.
