Creating Beautiful Gardens Filled with Life Carolyn Summers, Author of Designing Gardens with Flora of the American East Instructive examples of gardens full of native plants are hard to find. Tonight, landscape architect Carolyn Summers fills that void with a plethora of images and commentary to fire our imaginations. She reviews the science behind the essential life support function of indigenous plants, takes us on a journey through a variety of formal gardens and more “naturalistic” landscapes, and illustrates the effective use of our northeastern native flora so that we can better visualize their full design potential. Ms. Summers is an adjunct professor at Westchester Community College in New York.
