Learn Plant Identification on Your Schedule

Annuals Plant Identification Online Course

Annuals Plant Identification Online Course

Do you want to learn to identify and appreciate commonly used plants on your own schedule?

Longwood Gardens is partnering with the Department of Horticultural Science at North Carolina State University to provide a unique fully-online survey of plants. This survey will teach you the use and key identifying characteristics of these plants through photo stories, online fact pages, and beautiful images. The plants will include some favorites and also a few introductions from the research and breeding programs at Longwood Gardens and North Carolina State University.

There is a series of three, five-week long modules focused on different plant groupings. The first module (Annuals, Perennials, and Vines) starts on July 13. The second module starts on September 15 and covers Trees, Shrubs, and Conifers. And the third module begins in early 2016 and will include Edibles, Bulbs, and Houseplants.

You may register for each online class separately, and we are offering discounted fees for JCRA members, and JCRA and Master Gardener volunteers. Please use this link to register and pay for the module of your choice!​
