Local property owners can improve their outdoor view with free classes offered by SCV Water. To enhance the possibilities for residents’ gardens this spring, a class will be offered called Landscape with Perennials, where attendees will learn how to select flowers that can add charm to your landscape for years to come. These are plants that live two or more years and are well-suited for the SCV climate. Participants will receive a list of perennials that can help spice up their landscape with texture and pops of color.
Bay area horticulture professor Stephen Williams is slated to teach the class on Saturday, May 19 from 9 a.m. to noon at SCV Water, located at 27234 Bouquet Canyon Road in Santa Clarita. Williams received his horticultural training at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, California. He honed his skills at Descanso and Huntington Botanical Gardens where he worked as garden staff and plant propagator/nursery manager for 10 years. He has been affiliated with U.C.C.E. Master Gardeners since 1996 and has been teaching free, weekly home gardening classes for 10 years at Mt. S.A.C.
