Featured Presentations

For over ten years, Kelly operated Rainbow Iris Farm. He's the author of A Guide to Bearded Irises: Cultivating the Rainbow for Beginners and Enthusiasts and is working on a new book, Dig This: Stylish Gardening with Kickass Plants.

Life on the Edge: Tough Plants for Tough Places
Native vegetation grows and thrives in harsh, sometimes threatened, and highly variable environments. Kelly will share a palette of garden-worthy plants from harsh environments. Learn about how plants respond to their environment and how you can translate that into success in your own garden.

Chic Plants for Modern Gardens: A Commentary on New Plants
Learn about the current state of ornamental horticulture and new perennial varieties. Looking for audience participation, Kelly will lead a rousing discussion on what makes a great garden plant and how some new plants just aren't all they're cracked up to be.
