Event Description

Come and learn about some amazing plants from the plant lover’s treasure chest that is Chile.

The country’s 2,500 mile length and location at the juncture of powerful geological forces have resulted in almost every known habitat.   Chile is also striking similar in many aspects to California, which is why so many of Chile’s plants can do extremely well in our local gardens!

This class will cover:

  • Some factors influencing plant diversity in Chile
  • Overview of plants from Chile’s central zone which closely resembles California’s central section
  • In-depth look at several plants that represent Chile’s floral diversity
