Great Plants and Plant Combinations

Janet Macunovich, an Advanced Master Gardener with 26 years of experience, designing, planting, and maintaining perennial gardens and landscapes will present the program Great Plants and Plant Combinations: The Best of the Best Perennials and Shrubs on Tuesday, March 27th at 7 p.m. at the Rochester Hills Public Library.

Most designers aim for year-round interest, but sometimes the design process gets bogged down in looking for color alone. Janet Macunovich will give you suggestions for trees, shrubs and perennials that not only look great together for their seasonal colors but also for their combined forms, textures and foliage characteristics. Each of these groups is also compatible in terms of their site requirements—each member in a group grows well in the same amount of light, moisture, and type of soil. You’ll see not only suggestions for sunny garden spots but shaded, dry, wet, even windy sites.

Registration is required and open to those with a Rochester Hills Public library card. To register go to the Events Calendar at or call 248-656-2900. The Rochester Hills Public Library is located in downtown Rochester two blocks east of Main Street off of University Drive on Olde Towne Road. For more information, please call 248-650-7124.
