Garden Design Lecture & Luncheon: Botanizing in the Land of the Blue Poppy

Thursday, November 07, 2019

Join us for some high-elevation Himalayan escapism via Matt Mattus' stunning photos and film from a recent expedition.

He followed in the footsteps of some of the greatest 19th-century botanists (Farrer, Ward, Forest) through a fascinating horticultural area, Yunnan and the borderlands of the Tibetan Autonomous Region. This area remains of immense interest to botanists and alpine gardeners and is home to varietals of primula, rhododendron and meconopsis: the famed blue poppy.

***The lecture will be followed by a luncheon, book signing, and raffle at the R.I. Country Club.***
