A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach – March 25 – Tony Avent on Aroids

If you’ve got elephant’s ears or calla lilies, some Jack-in-the-pulpits in your shade garden, or maybe a philodendron indoors on your windowsill, you’re well on your way to a collection of the plants called Aroids. I don’t know anyone with more of these diverse and curious creatures than today’s guest, Tony Avent, who’s here to tempt us to collect some, too.

Aroids are some of the most popular perennials at Plant Delights Nursery, where they are a specialty and a particular passion of founder Tony Avent’s. I kind of have a thing for them, too, lately, so selfishly I am extra-delighted to have him on the line today to give us—me!—a tour of the best of the bizarre bunch.
