Did you know that blue is the rarest flower color? Please join Brandon George, graduate student in Public Garden Leadership at Cornell University, for an in-depth talk on the color blue. In this webinar, Brandon will discuss what is technically considered blue, as well as the science behind the color, why it is so rare in the plant world, and some tips for displaying it in a garden. Finally, he will share where true blue can be found at the Cornell Botanic Gardens. The program is sure to spark your curiosity and inspire you to search for blue next time you’re visiting our gardens!The program is free but pre-registration is required. Click here to register.  After registering, you will be sent a confirmation with instructions for joining the Zoom webinar. The webinar will be recorded for later viewing, but participants in the live program will have the opportunity to pose questions. 

This program is offered as part of Go Public Gardens Days (May 7 to May 16, 2021), an initiative of the American Public Gardens Association designed to raise awareness and appreciation for public gardens in communities across North America.
