Define Interesting — Native Plants for Multiple Seasons of Interest
Presented by Kathy Salisbury, Director of Temple University’s Ambler Arboretum

Frequently, space in our yards is limited, so we must be choosy when it comes to plant selection. Kathy Salisbury’s rule is, “if I can’t eat you, you must be interesting in at least three seasons to live in my yard,” and so she started collecting native plants with multiple seasons of interest. Sometimes this requires thinking differently about a plant’s features, and it always results in a more dynamic landscape. Salisbury will cover some of her favorite native trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants that delight throughout the year while challenging us to redefine “interesting.”

Kathy Salisbury is the director of Temple University’s Ambler Arboretum. She earned a BS in ornamental horticulture from Delaware Valley College and an MS in public horticulture from the University of Delaware, where she was a Longwood Gardens Graduate Fellow. Her career has encompassed public horticulture and horticulture education. Her varied experiences have had one thing in common: connecting people of all ages and backgrounds to the magic of plants. When not teaching others about plants, she is at home in her own (mostly) native plant garden, tending to her flock of happy hens or snowboarding, kayaking or hiking — depending on the season.
