Penn State Extension: Flowering Tree Identification for Home Gardeners – $60


Flowering trees add long lasting beauty to residential landscapes. In addition to beautiful flowers, they can offer outstanding fall color, ornamental fruit, and lovely bark. At Flowering Tree Identification for Home Gardeners we will practice how to identify these trees using winter as well as seasonal characteristics and discuss attributes of available cultivars to help you improve your outdoor space.
 

This course is for all persons interested in horticulture. No prior study of woody ornamental plants is required. Join us for classroom time and field study, if the weather permits, so please dress appropriately!
