As a heat wave moved through Tulsa, Okla. this month, renowned horticulturist Dan Heims provided locals with refreshing insights into one of his favorite topics: Perennials.
Heims, a noted plant breeder, author and co-owner of Terra Nova Nurseries, lectured for a standing-room only crowd at the Linnaeus Teaching Garden 5th anniversary celebration in Tulsa June 4. After having hunted the globe for new perennials and plant species as well as co-owning one of the world’s top breeding labs, Heims gave the more than 350 attendees a humorous and informative look at the “World’s Greatest Perennials.” According to staff, it was the highest attended lecture the garden has ever hosted.
