'Friends of Pinks' with Lyndon Penner

Emmanuel Anglican Church, 607 Dufferin Ave @ 12th Street, Saskatoon, we meet in the church basement.

Friends of Pinks- Most gardeners are familiar with carnations and pinks, which are both species of Dianthus. Many kinds can be found in our gardens but the rest of this family (Caryophyllaceae) is not well represented in prairie plantings. Join Lyndon for a colourful and interesting introduction to some of the best and most wonderful plants this family has to offer! Most are easy to grow, very showy, and highly attractive to pollinators! Many also make excellent cutflowers. You'll meet the campions and catchfly, sandworts and soapworts, as well as some old favourites you might have forgotten about, like Maltese cross and baby's breath (there are some really nice species of Gypsophila and some that you should avoid!) This will be a terrific presentation for both experienced gardeners as well as those who are just starting out!
