Herbaceous Plant Identification
Herbaceous plants occupy prairies, wetlands, forest understories, and many other habitats. The identifying characteristics of this diverse group of plants are often quite different from those of woody plants. You'll learn the fundamental herbaceous plant identification characteristics, as well as some specialized ones for select native and cultivated species. Focus will be on broad-leaved plants rather than grasses, sedges, and rushes.
