Roy Diblik, Top 40 Perennials for Urban Environments
Co-owner, Northwind Perennial Farm, Burlington, WI
Author of The Know Maintenance Perennial Garden, Timber Press 2014

Noted plantsman and designer Roy Diblik specializes in highly aesthetic, ecologically directed, and emotionally charged plantings for all seasons, while reducing maintenance through design. He is widely recognized as the plantsman behind Piet Oudolf’s midwestern garden designs, including the Lurie Garden at Millennium Park in Chicago. In his talk, Roy showcases his top perennial picks for urban gardens, parks, and landscapes.

The SYMPOSIUM includes screenings of the acclaimed documentary Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf, with an introduction by director Tom Piper.
In this moving documentary, landscape designer Piet Oudolf describes his creative process, from abstract sketches to his theories on beauty and color.
