North Carolina flowers topic of next garden club meeting

Sara Evans and Chuck Dayton will present “North Carolina Wildflowers” at the St. Anthony Park Garden Club Program on Tuesday, Dec. 2, at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church Fellowship Hall, 2136 Carter Ave.

The club’s business meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. Refreshments and social time will begin at 7 p.m. The program will run from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Evans and Dayton spend spring and fall in the mountains of western North Carolina. While neither is a botanist, Evans’ mother was a wildflower expert. Her unique collection of native Appalachian wildflowers and shrubs became the basis of the couple’s North Carolina native garden, which is open to the public. Dayton is an accomplished photographer who has taken photos of many of these wildflowers. They will offer an illustrated talk about the unique ecosystem of the Appalachians.
