Native Flora in Autumn


Autumn is one of the most spectacular times to learn more about the native flora of the Northeast. Goldenrods and asters take center stage at this time of year, but can be difficult to identify. Equipped with a 10X power hand lens, you'll learn to use a plant key to help you identify these plants on the Garden grounds, as well as other wildflowers, shrubs, and trees.
