FEATURED SPEAKERS

   DARREL MORRISON, FASLA
   DESIGNING FOR PLACE: Merging Art and Ecology in Regional Landscapes.
   Darrel inspires us to look at regional landscapes and plant communities. He restates
   the case for the beauty and utility of local flora and suggests a broader influence
   on garden design. Darrel is a longtime advocate of the use of native vegetation in
   landscape and restoration work. Former Dean of the School of Environmental Design
   at the University of Georgia, Darrel is currently based in New York, where he
   continues to practice ecologically-based design and teaches part-time at Columbia
   University.

   ROY DIBLIK
   PLANT COMMUNITIES FOR HEALTHY GARDENS.
   Roy discusses underutilized native plants and communities that have great
   functional and aesthetic value for gardens. Some plants are deemed too common;
   others are not understood to have market value. The genus Carex (sedge) is a
   good example. Roy will also talk about his "know-maintenance" approach to planting
   and maintaining mixed borders used at Northwind Perennial Farm in Burlington, WI,
   recently featured in Martha Stewart Living.

   CONNECTING COMMUNITIES
   A Panel Discussion of the Role of Native Plants in Today's Urban Landscape
   DARREL MORRISON; ROY DIBLIK; ULI LORIMER, curator of BBG's Native Flora Garden;
   and JODY PAYNE, curator of the NYBG Native Plant and Rock Gardens
   In 2013 Brooklyn Botanic Garden unveils a 2-acre expansion of its 102 year-old
   Native Flora Garden and The New York Botanical Garden opens a newly designed
   Native Plant Garden. The BBG and NYBG curators for each of these gardens and
   plant collections join Plant-O-Rama keynote speakers for a lively discussion of the
   importance of native plants in our ever-changing urban environment.
