Program on succulents planned

MADRID – Debra Lee Baldwin, author of the best-selling books Designing with Succulents and Succulent Container Gardens, will be speaking at the Iowa Arboretum’s Spring Fever Symposium.

The focus of the morning talk will be on using succulents in containers, wall gardens, wreaths, bouquets, topiaries and more. After lunch and a book signing, Debra will demonstrate some planting combinations with a participant taking home one of her creations. The Arboretum will be offering a selection of hardy and non-hardy succulents, clearly identified, at the accompanying plant sale.

Cost for the program is $45 for Members, $55 for non Members. The early bird registration of $55 for members and $65 for non members ends Friday.
