When the exuberant spring wildflower display is over, summer challenges us to find eyecatching
plants that support wildlife and contribute to a healthy environment. Learn to identify
60 beautiful and functional native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous perennials chosen by our
experienced horticultural staff. Through lectures and outdoor labs, examine the key identifying
characteristics of each plant, their preferred site conditions and environmental value. Use this
information and expertise when selecting plants for the summer garden. Be prepared to walk
