Are you ready to up your game? If you work with plants, you need to look smart doing it - and the best way to look smart is to know what they are, where to find them, and how to use them. This class will teach you more than you ever knew about landscape plants, and you'll love every minute of it!
Over the course of 11 weeks, you'll be submerged in the world of plants. Through hands-on plant identification walks, comprehensive classroom lectures, and online instructional tools, lead instructor Steve Kristoph will teach you two vital skills that all plant lovers and managers should master:
The ability to identify landscape plants on the properties you manage
Expanding your palette of plants to select the right plant for the right site and the right purpose
This course will cover a variety of different kinds of landscape plants, including shade trees, ornamental small trees, conifers, needle evergreens, broadleaf evergreens, rhododendrons and their kin, flowering shrubs, groundcover options, and rariflora.
