Join horticulturalist Kevin Wilcox for an in depth look at Maples: the genus Acer.  He will focus on the smaller species and cultivated varieties suitable for the smaller home landscape.  Special consideration will be placed on Hardiness for Zone 5, specific cultural needs, and any exceptional features these trees may exhibit.  Aside from the more common species of Japanese Maples, like Acer palmatum and Acer japonicum, Kevin will also explore many other lesser known species like Acer triflorum, the Three-flower Maple.  Sorting out this enormous group of plants is a challenge and Kevin will help participants identify the best of the bunch!
Kevin Wilcox is an expert in the field of woody ornamental plants.  He has worked in horticulture for 29 years and owns and operates Silver Spring Nursery in Bloomfield CT He is an active member of the Connecticut Horticulture Society and teaches widely throughout Connecticut.  He is an active member of the Connecticut Horticulture Society and teaches widely throughout Connecticut.
