Time to thaw out those green thumbs, gardeners! Defrost with help from three leading plant professionals in this half-day horticulture forum at Newfields.
Peter Zale, Ph.D., Associate Director, Conservation, Plant Breeding and Collections at Longwood Gardens will discuss his 30 plant exploration trips and how they’ve played a role in his personal garden. Brent Horvath, President of Intrinsic Perennials Gardens Inc., will present on new and underused perennials and ornamental grasses. Finally, Newfields’ own Horticulturist Patricia Schnieder will share the design process behind the historic Border Garden renovation on the Oldfields estate.
We’ll conclude this half-day session with all the speakers back on stage for a panel discussion.

As the Indianapolis Museum of Art has grown to become an internationally renowned museum, we now turn our attention toward increasing our emphasis on combining art with nature. This combination of art and nature was always part of the original vision—and now we see a vision for the next fifty years. The galleries are surrounded by gardens, water features, over a hundred acres of woodland filled with surprise and beauty. The campus itself is ideal for performances, afternoon walks, kite-flying, cloud-gazing, memory-making, new-idea-having. There’s a mansion to stage unforgettable events, restaurants for relaxing, bars for microbrews and friendships. Newfields is a setting where it’s easy to make connections of all sorts. Like no place else in Indianapolis.
