Topics for the day

The Modern Peony: Cultivating Beauty and Unlocking Landscape Utility. Nick Maycher’s presentation covers good reasons to grow peonies, their basic growing requirements, suggested cultivars for building a staggered bloom sequence, short types for rock gardens, and best landscapers — peonies that stand up and stand out.

The Amazing World of Succulents. With their amazing array of colours, shapes, and textures, Elaine Rude’s presentation (via Zoom) shows us why she thinks every garden should include some of these gems. The hardy species thrive in challenging areas of our gardens with minimal care while tender species make great outdoor container arrangements and transition well to spending the winter indoors.

Nick Maycher, Prairie Peonies, Edmonton. Nick has been growing peonies with an all-consuming passion since his early twenties. Nick’s passion project is the Prairie Peonies Display Garden, with 150 carefully curated peony cultivars all grown on a city plot in Edmonton. Nick’s collection celebrates the

rich and diverse history of peonies and contains historic heirlooms, fragrant wonders, award winners, Canadian hybrids, best landscapers, and cutting-edge new introductions.

Elaine Rude, Paintbrush Garden Design and Consulting. Elaine wears many hats: she is a master gardener, garden designer/consultant, volunteer, educator, and a writer. But most of all, she is passionate about plants. With limited water resources on her acreage NW of Calgary, Elaine has eagerly dived down the succulent rabbit hole.
