Explore the huge variety of native trees, shrubs, and woody vines. Learn which species grow well in shade, which support local wildlife, and how you should stagger your plantings for continuous bloom, fruit production, and fall color. We’ll discuss growth characteristics, cultural requirements, and best horticultural uses.
The course will include lectures and walks in the Garden as well as a field trip to The Arnold Arboretum. Bring a bag lunch.
