Annual and Herbaceous Perennials for Historial and Contemporary Gardens

Students will study the key identification characteristics, propagation, planting and growth of a wide variety of annual, perennial and biennial plants. Students will learn to recognize plants by studying flowers, flowering traits, and time of flowering. Plants favoured by birds, bees and/or butterflies will be noted. Local cooperators and projects will be sought for the benefit of students and community. Students may be involved in the studying, planning and maintenance of historical plants and gardens.
