As the days get cooler and nights grow longer, attractive fall plants offer captivating flowers,
enticing fruit, and stunning leaf color. They also provide much needed food for resident and
migrating birds and other wildlife. Learn to identify 60 beautiful and functional native trees,
shrubs, and herbaceous perennials that can enhance your garden. Through lecture and outdoor
labs, examine the identifying characteristics, preferred site conditions, and the environmental
significance of each plant. Be prepared to walk outdoors.
Eileen Boyle is the Director of Education and Research at Mt. Cuba Center. She loves teaching,
especially about plants and their relationships with birds and butterflies. Previously she was the
Director of Horticulture at the Philadelphia Zoo and the New York Botanical Garden.
