Roy Diblik connects well-performing perennials for our region to maintenance and planting style. His design concept includes stylized perennial garden grids placing plants that live well together. Diblik calls this style “Know Maintenance” gardening, a fresh and innovative approach to easy-care gardens. He has put this style into place in his designs for many influential gardens, including the Sullivan Arch at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Oceanarium at the Shedd Aquarium. Diblik will discuss his concepts and share images of plants and gardens that illustrate this style.
