About this event

Creating Magnificent Moonlit Spaces

Appreciate your garden from a whole new light—at night! 
Who can resist a garden at dusk that’s shimmering with white flowers? That’s when the moon garden or all-white garden comes to life. Mysterious and ethereal, the moon garden begins to glow when the intense reds, oranges, blues, and purples of other flowers fade into the night. Discover how you can take your garden up a notch by including key features—fragrant plants, fire, water and lighting that can create exquisite settings. Horticulturalist Nina Koziol shares tips to fill your garden with white flowers and native plants that reflect the light of the moon. Signup required.

Speaker Bio: Nina Koziol
Feature Writer, The Landscape Contractor, Adjunct Faculty/Writer, The Chicago Botanic Garden 

"I'm a horticulturist and garden writer who tends plants on a deer-infested acre about 40 miles from Chicago. I wrote garden articles for the Chicago Tribune for 22 years as well as for Chicagoland Gardening, Old-House Journal, Organic Gardening and The American Gardener. I write for ILCA's The Landscape Contractor, PlantersPlace.com, and for The Chicago Botanic Garden's web site. I've been teaching horticulture, garden design and residential landscape design history at the Chicago Botanic Garden and The Morton Arboretum since 1997. Why gardening? I was born in Paris, France, to a father who was a life-long, decorated military photographer (yes, I was an Army brat.) He met my mother in England during WWII. My grandparents had an incredible garden in Chelmsford, Essex, England, with a lovely greenhouse my grandfather built. I credit my love of all things gardening—plants, birds, insects and clouds—to my mum who encouraged me at age seven to do my science project on the parts of an Impatiens flower. After that, I was hooked."
