Perennials are defined as plants that return to our gardens each year from the same root part. Unlike annuals that last just one season, well-selected perennials can be a permanent part of your garden. This program will help narrow your choices for the Brazos Valley. Presenter Dr. Welch will discuss ten of the best perennials for your garden, where they grow best and how to increase their numbers so that you can share them with your friends and family. The public is invited at no charge.
Dr. William C. Welch is Professor and Extension Landscape Horticulturist in the Texas A&M University Department of Horticulture Sciences. He is a three degree LSU alum, has written columns for Southern Living magazine and is the author of Perennial Garden Color and Antique Roses for the South. He is also co-author of additional books including The Southern Heirloom Garden, The Bountiful Flower Garden and The Bulb Hunter. Dr. Welch will have copies of his books available for sale at this program and all proceeds benefit his scholarship funds in the Texas A&M University Department of Horticultural Sciences.
