NEWS: Open Garden at the Home of Patrick Anderson

Pacific Horticulture Society invites you to an Open Garden at the Fallbrook home of Patrick Anderson on Saturday, October 14th, at 9:30 AM. Hosted by PHS board member Princess Norman, the event includes light refreshments, remarks from Patrick and from Pacific Horticulture editor, Lorene Edwards Forkner, and a book signing with Debra Lee Baldwin, who will sign copies of her completely revised second edition of Designing with Succulents.

Patrick Anderson refers to the jostle of aloes, cacti, and euphorbias planted in his garden as a “dry jungle.” Punctuated by a collection of exuberant sculpture and outdoor art, the dramatic arid landscape sweeps over and spills down a half-acre hillside. Arched redwood bridges cross a rock-strewn dry streambed and gravel paths wend among colorful and textural plantings. A tile-roofed pavilion at the top of the slope, an architectural focal point and shaded retreat, offers another perspective for viewing the intricacies of the sculptural landscape.

Registration and additional event information can be found on the PHS website.
