June Workshop - Colorful Foliage for your Low-Water Garden - Morning 

TOPIC DESCRIPTION:   Leaves come in a thousand shades of green, but also in silver, crimson, gold, black, pink, bronze, magenta and chartreuse.  Learn why and how to use colorful foliage to enhance your garden.  This workshop is also a garden tour, and showcases all types of plants, with an emphasis on low-water plants for our Mediterranean climate.  Hundreds of plants are arranged in a series of themed gardens, and as we walk through the garden Susi will explain her foliage combinations and how to create year-long interest without relying on short-lived flowers for color and visual interest.

TEACHERSusi Torre-Bueno

Susi Torre-Bueno is the past-president of the San Diego Horticultural Society and editor of the SDHS newsletter, and has been a passionate gardener since the third grade, when she grew her first radish from seed.  Susi's former 2-acre Encinitas garden was featured in numerous magazine articles and on HGTV.  Starting nearly 9 years ago, she’s been creating a low-water 1-acre garden at her home in Vista, using a wide range of plants including Californian & Mexican natives, Mediterranean trees and shrubs, South African succulents and bulbs, and hundreds of species from all over the globe.
