Join Polly Hill Arboretum Director, Timothy M. Boland, as he outlines the history, programs and unique collections of the Polly Hill Arboretum on Martha’s Vineyard. The legendary horticulturist Polly Hill started the Arboretum by planting a seed in 1958. The internationally recognized collections today include the national collection of Stewartia, which grow among a dazzling array of Rhododendrons, Magnolias and several other rare plants. Tim continues Polly Hill’s dedication of growing plants from seed. His talk will include details about recent plant expeditions to Japan and the southeastern US and the exciting plants that continue the living legacy of Polly Hill.
