The extraordinary Zahner horticultural team, mother and son Glenda and Jeff Zahner join us with new varieties and a special tour with reception. Enjoy a talk on evergreens, hedges, native azaleas — and other challenges for landscape design in Western North Carolina mountains.
Jeff Zahner created Chattooga Gardens with his wife, floral designer Jodie Zahner. Glenda Zahner, well-known behind-the-scenes as Jeff’s mother and horticulturist extraordinaire, has a specialty in naive azaleas. Both are well known for their knowledge of plant materials, particularly natives. Jeff enjoys rescuing plants from construction sites as well as propagating rare plants including Oconee Bells (Shortia galacifolia). He serves on the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust Board and the steering committee as the field trip coordinator for the Cullowhee Native Plant Conference held each July at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina.
A field trip to nearby Chattooga Gardens follows this garden salon, so wear your casual clothes, bring an umbrella and have fun, Q&A.
