As a special treat, attendees will be able to attend the famous annual fall plant sale at the SFA Garden’s Pineywoods Native Plant Center. Lectures will cover a broad sweep of horticulture and gardening history in Texas beginning with the Spanish era through pass-a-long Narcissus, garden scenes from the past, and modern introductions.
