Class: Unravelling Botanical Names

  • This event has passed.

Scientific names offer precision and accuracy when identifying plants, but they can also intimidate even the most seasoned gardener. Amy Highland, Director of Collections at Mt. Cuba Center, explains how to pronounce botanical names and reveals how they provide an extra layer of understanding about plants: where they come from; who discovered them; what groups they belong to; and even how they were used in native cultures. Learn ways to conquer the secret language of plants and add another skill to your gardening talents.

Snow date for this class is Wednesday, February 27, 2019.
