2013 Garden Gala Speakers

Leanna Culver:  Polk County Master Gardener & Volunteer Curator of Coleus @ the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden. 

Leanna is crazy about coleus.  For the past five years she has donated countless hours tending the coleus collection @ the GDMBG.  She is extremely proud of what is thought to be the “largest coleus display garden” around and she loves teaching & talking all about coleus.  Two of her favorite coleus are ‘Alabama Sunset’ & ‘Mississippi Summer’

Daniel Barbec: Owner & Operator of Coe’s Floral & Gifts in Ames, IA will delight us with his floral designs and entertain us during the creative processes.  Dan always puts on a fabulous fun demonstration & performance. We’ll find out what’s hot and what’s not for our spring garden & home décor.

Rita Minard: Clematis Enthusiast & Avid Clematis Collector of over 90 clematis cultivars & over different 100 plants
Mission Statement:  “Simplify, demystify growing and caring for clematis.” 
Rita says clematis is so elegant & surprisingly easy to grow.  She tells us we can see clematis in bloom from early spring to late fall in our gardens.  She will give us tips on how to grow, care for, & display these diverse magnificent plants.
