Explore the world of traditional woody plants, including flowering trees, shrubs, and conifers. Learn cultural information about these structural plantings and their use in the landscape. Through photo stories, video presentations, online fact pages, an e-book, flash cards, vocabulary games, mystery plants, and hundreds of beautiful images learn the key identifying characteristics of these plants and how best to use them in the landscape.

You will be able to take the skills they learn to identify these plants and apply them to others you'll encounter outside this class.

Set your own schedule, and work at your own pace! You can participate anywhere that you have access to the internet, and you will have access to the course resources 24/7 for the entire 6 weeks of the class and for 6 months after the course ends. There are no required presentations or any set times that you will need to meet online.

This course counts as a 3-week elective toward a Certificate in Ornamental Horticulture or in Landscape Design.
