In this session, participants will discover spectacular perennials for sun and shade that brighten the landscape from spring through fall. Many newer varieties will be featured.

As one perennial stops blooming, it "passes the baton" to the next "winner," Mendez says, “concluding with fall bloomers that finish the year with brilliance.”

Attendees will learn helpful garden-care tips and shortcuts to maximize the garden's color and reduce maintenance.

A book signing will follow the presentation.
