Variegated foliage (multicolored leaves) can be a real workhorse in the garden. It can provide color and interest when other plants aren’t in bloom. It can knit together garden elements by echoing or contrasting colors and it can provide focal points. Katie Creighton will talk about some of the characteristics of variegated foliage. She will let you know the Dos and Don’ts of incorporating them into our gardens.

Katie Creighton is a recently retired Landscape Designer who designed and managed the installation of gardens in the Bay Area for 24 years. Since retirement, Katie has focused on consulting with homeowners on best practices and approaches for successful landscape design. Her emphasis is on gardens that are successful in a Mediterranean climate, drought tolerant, deer resistant, low maintenance, and fun!

Katie is a member of APLD (Association of Professional Landscape Designers) where she served for several years on the board of the Bay Area District. She has been a member of Montelindo Garden Club for 25 years, holding various board positions including President. She received her certificate in Horticulture, Design, and Construction from Merritt College.
