Nothing beats annuals for a big splash of summer color! Even a well-established perennial bed will benefit from the addition of these long-blooming accents. Join us as we navigate the uses, cultural requirements, pests, and diseases of the tried-and-true selections, as well as some lesser-known varieties. Discuss your favorites and discover some unknown gems. 

New this year, we have split our 6-week Annuals class into two parts. There will be an exam after each part, and both parts must be passed for the course to qualify toward the Certificate of Merit in Ornamental Horticulture. You are welcome to take these two parts in any order you wish.
