From sustainable roses to edibles to outstanding native varieties, this year’s Perennial Plant Symposium has topics that the Massachusetts Horticultural Society hopes will pique the interest of both home gardeners and professionals.

This symposium, which the Horticultural Society is sponsoring with the Perennial Plant Association, is open to all levels of gardeners and will be held on Aug. 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gardens at Elm Bank in Wellesley. The required registration for this event is $125.

If you would like to add variety to your rose garden (color, size, fragrance), Mike and Angelina Chute will show you how to do it. If you are looking to add new perennials to your garden, William Cullina will profile some native ones yet to be discovered by the gardening public. There are perennials that can feed the pollinators in your garden, and Dan Jaffe will show a variety of such native plants.
