Presentation Summary:
Conifers provide the structural framework for many gardens, serving a variety of roles as specimens, focal points, screens, hedges, and backdrops. Participants of Woody Plant Identification: Conifers will learn about the distinctive growth habits of conifers and how to use conifers in their landscapes to add bold foliage color contrasts and texture. Registrants will receive a full color manual of the conifers covered during class.
