HPSO Gen(i)us Program: “Expanding the Conifer Palette” with Norm Jacobs

Genus genius Norm Jacobs, co-owner of Arbutus Garden Arts Nursery, will speak about the many colorful conifers that add interest and pizzazz to the winter garden.  The title of his talk is “Expanding the Conifer Palette”
Norm Jacobs has gardened since he was of single-digit age.  A former math/physics tech-type, he began his present garden in 1985.  The demands and possibilities of the dry hillside/woodland garden at a junction of conifer forest, oak savannah, and grassy meadow, grew into a small nursery with a focus on Japanese maples, dwarf conifers, epimediums, and a handful of other favorites.  Norm pursues his passion for Japanese and Chinese garden plants as well as design.  Growing hundreds of varieties/cultivars of conifers, those that pleased him in the garden became those that he, and co-owner Deb Zaveson, grew in the nursery.

 Come join us as we learn about the new and exciting colors currently available in conifers!
