Herbaceous plants accentuate other features in the landscape, and when used effectively, they can provide almost year-round interest. Learn identification methods and landscape uses of perennials and annuals commonly used in the urban landscape, including native plants. The class will identify and view plant characteristics during sessions on BBG grounds. Please note that attendance at the final class session is mandatory.

This course is one of eight required for the Certificate in Horticulture—a program is designed for people who plan to pursue a career in the horticulture industry and for highly motivated home gardeners who want an in-depth understanding of plants and gardening.
