    2022 Horticulturist of the Year

    Dave Fross

    Saturday, September 17, 2022

    at The Huntington Library, Art Museum
    and Botanical Gardens

    Festivities will be held in the Brody Botanical Center.
    Social time and Silent Auction begin at 5:30pm.
    Silent Auction closes at 7:00pm, followed by dinner service.

    Presentation begins at 8:15pm.

    The Southern California Horticultural Society is pleased to honor Dave Fross with the 2022 Horticulturist of the Year award. Fross founded Native Sons Nursery in 1979, specializing in plants native to California and Mediterranean climatic regions. He also taught horticulture for 25 years at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo, and knew many luminaries in plant research and the trade. He is the co-author of several influential books on landscaping with native plants. Fross will share the breadth and scope of his acquired knowledge in a program titled "Home Ground". We think he is the perfect person to bring us back together for the first live annual banquet and Silent Auction since 2019, and we hope you can join us!

    Tickets are $45.00 (Benefactor Level members can receive 2 free tickets.) For more information, please download the flyer here:
