Back to Basics: Plant Identification

January 22 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Back to Basics Series:  A Down & Dirty Introduction or Refresher for the Home Gardener

If you’d like to have a better understanding of the landscape outside your window, or simply need to blow the cobwebs off what you once knew about your home garden, this series is for you. Join us for an exploration of The Basics.

PART 2:  “Plant Identification”

So, you want to identify a plant and go to a manual but are perplexed by the lingo; it’s all Latin, and not just the name. With UDBG Director and Professor of Landscape Horticulture Dr. John Frett, we will survey the basic morphological terms, consider nomenclature basics, and discuss the usefulness of keys for identifying plants.
