Are you interested in learning more about plant identification?

Learn to identify and appreciate commonly used plants on your own schedule. North Carolina State University is partnering with Longwood Gardens to provide a unique fully online survey of plants. These courses will expose you to plants that can be grown throughout the nation. The use and key identifying characteristics of these plants is conveyed through photo stories, presentations, online fact pages, and beautiful images. Take a look here: These courses will include some favorites and also a few introductions from the research and breeding programs at Longwood Gardens and North Carolina State University.

These courses last for six weeks and are fully online. For more information and to register please use this link: The first course for 2017 begins on March 6! Also, if you would like more information please feel free to contact me (
