Join us at Coe Hall for an enlightening evening with Dr. Michael A. Dirr, a world-renowned horticulturist, lecturer, and author from the University of Georgia. With numerous publications to his credit, including the widely acclaimed book Manual of Woody Landscape Plants, Dr. Dirr is a leading authority on woody plants.


Not only will this lecture celebrate the iconic genus of Hydrangea, but the long rich history of these beautiful plants, and explore the important roles they can play in the American landscape. In fact, today they are  one of the most cultivated plants on the planet–hundreds of new introductions of Hydrangea macrophylla (Florist Hydrangea) have been introduced between the late 1900s to today! 


Signed books will be available for purchase after Dr. Dirr’s lecture.
