North American Rock Garden Society Meeting:
Little Daffs and their Habitats
A talk with Lola Horowitz
Monday, February 28
Little Daffs and their Habitats will focus on the many species narcissi that grow in southern Spain, parts of Portugal and the slopes of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Of course, other wonderful plants share that Mediterranean habitat and some of them will be discussed. The pictures were taken in the course of a two week Greentour of those three countries in late February and early March of 2010.
Lola Lloyd Horwitz is a charter member of the Manhattan Chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society where she has served as its president and as co-program chair. She has also served on the board of NARGS. Her interest in plants started in childhood when her mother grew plants in a sun room in Illinois. Later, a cousin shared his obsession with dwarf conifers and somehow led her to the existence of the American Rock Garden Society (its former name). Now she is the happy owner of her own attached 'alpine house' in Brooklyn where, with luck, a few 'little daffs' grace the bench in the depth of winter. In other seasons, she maintains and designs gardens.
Talk starts at 6pm
