Friday, August 25
Hosted by William Radler
10020 West Meadow Drive, Greenfield, WI

Will Radler’s garden, Radler’s Rosarium, and his business, Rose Innovations, is set on two acres of extensive landscaping.
Perennials are the backbone of the garden and all plants are being tested, from the newest creations to the old standards.
The setting varies from rigidly formal in the 2,000-plus experimental rose “boot camp” to free form almost everywhere else!
The sloping garden uses stone to create terraces, raised garden beds, waterfalls, and a very large outdoor fireplace
and seating area. The recreated prairie demonstrates that perhaps nothing is safe from Radler’s horticultural wizardry.
Please note: This particular event will take place entirely outdoors.
