Join the Northwest Horticultural Society and Heronswood to celebrate the release of Dan’s new book, Windcliff, A Story of People, Plants, and Gardens.

Windcliff is the private home and garden of Robert Jones and Daniel Hinkley, sitting on a south facing high bluff overlooking Puget Sound near Indianola, Washington. Jones, an architect, designed and managed building of the house while Hinkley set about to make his second garden, his first to accept a palette of Mediterranean taxa. Though a work in progress, the structural elements, many raised by Hinkley from seeds or cuttings from his many trips abroad spanning three decades, are achieving maturity while providing the guts for a garden that spans four seasons. This hour-long presentation will be a fast paced pondering of the evolutionary process over 20 years, shouting out some of the successes from the original vision while merrily and merely glancing over a litany of ill thought approaches.
This event is a fund-raiser for Heronswood Garden and the education program of the Northwest Horticultural Society.

Daniel Hinkley is the creator of the fabled garden at Heronswood and has won a reputation as one of the foremost plant collectors of our time. Among his awards for lifetime achievement are the Arthur Hoyt Scott Medal from the Scott Arboretum, the Liberty Hyde Bailey award from the American Horticultural Society, and the Veitch Memorial Medal from the Royal Horticultural Society. His lectures are legendary, and his current garden at Windcliff, on Washington State’s Kitsap Peninsula, is renowned for its audacious design as well as for its deft use of rare, fascinating plants.
