Herbaceous Plant Identification - BLENDED

This blended class meets online for some sessions and on NYBG grounds for others. Registered students will receive login instructions and a syllabus with specifics.
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.
