Some plants just shout that they are from the North—conifers draped in snow (even in April!), grasses that remind us of the prairie, tall oaks from the big woods. But what about peonies, gladiolus, apples, and cantaloupe? These, too, are plants with Minnesota roots, according to Mary Lahr Schier, author of the new book The Northern Gardener: From Apples to Zinnias, 150 Years of Garden Wisdom (Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2017).
Schier will introduce local gardeners (or history buffs) to the people and plants that made horticulture in Minnesota. Her talk will feature dozens of images and a handout of heritage plants to include in your own northern garden.
