Proven Perennials
with Richard Hawke, horticulturist at Chicago Botanic Garden

It's new… but is it a winner or a dud? Richard Hawke will share information on perennials that have proven to be beautiful, reliable, and hardy in the Chicago Botanic Garden’s evaluation trials. Find out which perennials are winners and why.
