CHS October Meeting: Designing with Ornamental Grasses

October 25, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

CHS presents Anna Mizyn, of Anna’s Perennials, guest speaking on ‘Designing with Ornamental Grasses’.
Anna was born in Poland where she studied horticulture, Anna came to Canada in the late 1980’s and started her garden enterprise in the early 1990’s. Today, her family operation Anna’s Perennials covers over 90 acres where she grows a wide range of plants for show and for sale.
Although succulents and cacti are two of her specialties Anna has been growing and designing with ornamental grasses for decades. From species that thrive on the borders of ponds and wetland to the statuesque and towering grasses that love dry and sunny locations, Anna’s gardens showcase an ornamental grass for every environment.
As the effects of the climate crisis become ever more evident growing and designing with grasses becomes a more important tool in the gardener’s planting book. Perennial grasses offer many benefits from prevention of erosion, improving water retention, and the deep roots of some native grasses promote the soil-food-web.
Anna’s presentation will teach us the how’s and why’s of “Designing with Ornamental Grasses” and she will be bringing a broad selection of grasses for sale as well.
Note: Location for in-person meeting – Cannington Baptist Church.
