* Detail presented by Marcia Tatroe for the November 2 banquet -- Going Beyond Alpines – Expanding Your Plant Palette: Years ago I gave up trying to grow actual alpines and switched over most of my rock gardens to dryland plants. The reason? Dryland plants survived – alpines didn’t. Alpine plants can be notoriously difficult to please outside of their high mountain environs. This talk looks at growing easier-to-please alternatives adapted to our climate.
