Deb Ellis's Open Garden

In two days, on Monday afternoon between 4 pm and 6 pm, Deb Ellis, Master Gardener and co-founder of the Native Plant Society of NJ, welcomes us to her home where her favorites, Spring ephemerals — flowers that grow, bloom, and sleep in June — will surround us. Her jewel box of a garden hosts over 100 species of native plants.

Neighbor John Suskewich, also a member of the NPSNJ, lives right across the street with his menagerie of thriving specimens collected over the many years that he was the Book Manager at the NYBotanical Garden Shop.

All that’s missing, and sorely missed, is their former friend and neighbor, Fran Liscio.
