Natural Awakenings South Jersey

The Horticultural Society of South Jersey Presents Buds, Blooms, Berries and Bark – Native Plants for Multiple Seasons of Interest

Join the Horticultural Society of South Jersey on June 11 at 7 p.m. at Carman Tilelli Hall withKathleen Salisbury, director of the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University.

Frequently in New Jersey, space in our yards is limited. We must be choosy when it comes to plant selection. Salisbury’s rule is “If I can’t eat you, you must be interesting in at least three seasons to live in my yard,” and so she started collecting native plants with multiple seasons of interest. Sometimes this requires thinking differently about a plant’s features, and it always results in a more dynamic landscape. Salisbury will cover some of her favorite native trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants that delight throughout the year while challenging us to redefine interesting. 

Cost: Free. Location: 820 Mercer St., Cherry Hill. For more information, call 856-287-5959 or visit
