Identify your Landscape Plants

Join us for a botany and plant morphology review, and walk the grounds to learn how to identify common plants in your landscape!

This seminar will be a fast paced review focusing on the identification and placement of ornamental landscape plants & natives, to encourage sustainable landscape design practices. This offering will introduce species of the common native and non-native ornamental plants used in landscape architecture, horticulture, and urban forestry in New England. This seminar will approach plant identification from a horticultural perspective, covering basic plant morphology and botany to aid in the understanding of plant identification, also touching on the horticultural, cultural, and environmental requirements of each plant in relation to practical application.
