Webinar: Spring Ephemerals

Wed, May 20 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 1:00 pm EDT


Purchase tickets

Join Darrah Cole on a virtual walk along The Greenway in April and May to discover the surprising delights of spring ephemeral and bulbs. These plants are among the first to emerge and bloom in the spring providing a preview of the lushness and color to come. They also offer early nectar and refuge to native bees and insects providing vital support, along with the early blooming trees, to these important pollinators.The Greenway has increased the spring show by adding a wide variety of non native bulbs to the group of early Northeast natives. By mixing in species tulips, fritillaria, chionodoxa and more we have a lively show throughout the early gardening season.

Darrah Cole is Senior Horticulturist and Designer at the Greenway Conservancy, the non-profit responsible for the management and care of The Greenway in Boston. Before joining the Conservancy staff in 2011, Darrah managed private, historic estate gardens in Maine and Massachusetts and worked at Heronswood Nursery in Kingston, WA. She has actively employed organic growing methods professionally since 1995 and maintains AOLCP and MCH certifications.
