Join UNC Press Author Roxann Ward to celebrate the launch of Color-Rich Gardening for the South. In a lavishly-illustrated talk, Ward will show how color provides one of the easiest and most impressive ways to shape a garden with intense eye appeal. The book is built around ten original design templates and provides detailed instructions for a trouble-free start while offering plenty of room to adapt designs in ways you might not have before imagined. With Ward’s signature approach to plantings of annual flowers layered with bulbs, perennials, woody ornamentals, and fruiting shrubs, you will soon be combining beloved southern plants with new plant varieties to create lively, long-lasting color displays. 

*Instructions for joining via Zoom will be included in your confirmation email following registration. A recording of the class will be made available to registered participants for a limited period following the session for review and to provide access to those with scheduling conflicts.
