Held during Stonecrop’s North American Rock Garden Society plant sale, Esther Wrightman, of Wrightman Alpines, will talk about the rich horticultural legacy her father, Harvey Wrightman, has left for the rock gardening community. Open Days garden host and Stonecrop member Anne Spiegel said, “Harvey had an amazing ability to spot truly special plants on obscure seed lists and then painstakingly bring them into the trade.” Esther will profile great plants that many rock gardeners first met through Wrightman Alpines.
The Garden Conservancy's Open Days program is proud to present this lecture in partnership with Stonecrop Gardens. The NARGS's (North American Rock Garden Society) plant sale takes place 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; admission is $5 to Stonecrop.
Fee: $30 members of the Garden Conservancy; $35 non-members
