Fall PlantFest lecture & plant sale

Saturday, September 16, 2017, 10:00am

Fall PlantFest - Lecture and Plant Sale is just minutes away from downtown Portland. 

Lecture Program: A presentation by Sean Hogan

Sean Hogan of Cistus Design Nursery headlines this year’s HPSO Fall PlantFest with “Sean’s Top 40”—he’s talking plants, not music—on Saturday, September 16, at 10 am at PCC Rock Creek in Portland. Sean’s talk is followed with a plant sale featuring a number of specialty nurseries. The program includes a botanical display and book sales, and Sean promised to bring LOTS of door prizes!

Sean Hogan has a passion for plants – usual and unusual. In his PlantFest presentation, he’ll regale us with information and details on his top 40 plants, from West Coast to Mediterranean settings to woodlands and lush tropical areas.

Sean is a design consultant, author, and owner of Cistus Design Nursery. The nursery, located on scenic Sauvie Island, features Mediterranean climate, Southern hemisphere, hardy tropical plants, and much more. His focus has been on the introduction of new and appropriate plants for our area along with popularizing under-used and unknown plants for summer-dry climates.

In addition to running Cistus, Sean has been Director of Collections at Hoyt Arboretum and Curator at the University of California Berkeley Botanical Garden. He currently is involved in design and consultation projects, including Argyle Winery and Tasting Room Campus. He is author and collaborator for four books, including the upcoming Far West Plants, Timber Press, due in 2017. Sean also lectures in the U.S. and abroad.

As Sean says “Fall is the best time to plant”. Vendors will have many plants that can only be seen and purchased in the fall including fall and winter bulbs, perennials, shrubs, and plants for winter interest and varieties that will perform well in our gardens next year.

Program begins at 10:00am (doors open about 9:15am)
Admission: $10 (members), $20 (non-members)
