As late summer transitions into fall, the garden transitions, too, as many of the plants that bloomed in the summer begin to produce seeds or go dormant. Instructor Susan Brutico shares some of the many perennials whose eye-catching flowers, attractive foliage, or interesting seed heads will extend your garden’s season as the days shorten and the temperatures cool. Following the lecture, enjoy a guided walk to see firsthand how Longwood’s gardeners use perennials with fall interest in the landscape.

This is a rain-or-shine outdoor experience. Dress for the weather, and wear comfortable walking shoes, as you may be walking on uneven paths and wet areas.

This class has been approved by LA CES for three hours of professional development hours (HSW).
