Lurie Garden Featured Speaker: Amanda Patton

Good planting doesn’t happen by accident, nor by a horticultural love of plants. Listen to what Amanda Patton has to share!

Demonstrating her approach to planting design from an artistic perspective, Amanda will show how the principles and elements of art can be applied to planting design and why line, form, and value are more important than individual flowers.  By understanding the way the elements can be harnessed and manipulated, garden creators are able to enhance mood and create that all-important sense of place. A short reception will follow the program.
