Please join us for our February lecture meeting! Our speaker will be Nurseries Caroliniana founder, Ted Stephens, whose topic will be "Companion Plants for Hydrangeas in the Landscape".

Ted will be showing slides and discussing plants that work well in the landscape as companions to Hydrangeas. Both woodies and perennials will be examined so as to give as much year-round interest in the garden as possible even when Hydrangeas are not in flower.
