Betty Ford Alpine Gardens invites all to join at the Gardens Education Center as we host world famous rock gardener, Zdenek Zvolanek. This is your chance to become inspired by the unique rockwork utilizing a variety of sedimentary to granite stones. All selected plants are hardy to zone 4 or 5, including modern rock garden plants and woodlanders. Many new plants are results of the keen and brave work of Czech seed collectors.
The evening will provide the opportunity to meet the most famous of all the Czech rock gardeners. The Czechs have pioneered new methods in garden design using unique and innovative rock garden techniques. Zdenek’s colorful presentation will feature 21 of the best rock gardens found throughout Bohemia. Their crevice garden technique is successful and broadly adopted including many garden designs at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens. We are very fortunate to have Zdenek making a stop at the Gardens on his tour of the United States.
