Fed up with failed phormiums? Had it with ex-hebes? Thinking about finally doing something about that Zonal Denial Syndrome you've had for so long? If so, relax, because help is on the way.
   Pacific Northwest native plants expert Greg Rabourn is our Kevin Nicolay Memorial Lecture speaker for 2012, and he will tell us what we need to know about those perennials and shrubs that will actually make it through our 'new' climate.
    A Pacific Northwest native himself, Greg works for King County's Department of Natural Resources and Parks restoring and protecting native habitat, and has been thinking about what yards and gardens can become ever since he threw in the towel on mowing some years ago. Now he practices--and preaches--native plant gardening.
   You can see Greg, along with Doug Rice, on KCTV's prize-winning natural gardening show "Yard Talk," and hear him live, fielding gardening questions on 94.9 FM KUOW radio's "Green Days," with cohorts Willie Galloway and Marty Wingate. But better still, don't miss enjoying him in person.
