Jared Barnes – perennials that are huge both in size and in personality

November 16, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-4


This is a free event in partnership with the Georgia Perennial Plant Association and the Atlanta History Center.

The world is getting smaller! With more globalization, more efficient technology, and more people, small is now the big thing. Gardening is following the trend as breeders and plant companies select miniature models of plants and pixies for the patio. But, in an ever-shrinking world, we horticulturists shouldn’t forget the friendly giants of the landscape. Jared Barnes will share perennials that are huge both in size and in personality and show how to incorporate them into gardens both big and small.

Jared graduated in 2008 from the University of Tennessee at Martin with a focus on botany. The summer after graduation, he worked as an intern at The Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College. Jared received his graduate and PhD from NC State University. He is now at Stephen F Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, teaching the next generation of plant enthusiasts.
