Upcoming GPPA Speaker Meeting

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.
McElreath Hall
Atlanta History Center

Jim Locklear
Director of Conservation, Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha, NE

"The View from Phlox Mountain"

Phlox is a genus of 60 species that includes many of America’s most beloved wildflowers, and has yielded plants that are cultivated by gardeners around the world. Jim Locklear spent a decade researching and writing a book on this important group of plants that was published by Timber Press in 2011. His illustrated presentation will explore the ecology of phlox species in the wild and the history of their use in the garden.

Jim Locklear is director of conservation at Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha, Nebraska. He has worked in the field of public horticulture for nearly 30 years, previously at the Dyck Arboretum of the Plains in Kansas, the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, and the Morton Arboretum in Illinois. In 2012, Jim received the Edgar T. Wherry Award from the North American Rock Garden Society for "outstanding contribution in the dissemination of botanical and horticultural information about native North American plants."
