The Botanical Reserach Institute of Texas and author Shelley S. Cramm team up to open the discussion among APGA members of the potential draw this plant group offers – cultivating a network of resources and design inspiration among those gardens with existing Biblical plantings, and inspiring new plantings as APGA members expand and flourish their offerings and educational opportunities to their communities.
