Additional Information:

Instructor Steve Kristoph will teach you what they are, where they grow, and when to plant many of the species that are leading the current trend in woody plant material. These are the plants used by top Landscape Architects and Designers.

The class will begin with a short in-class presentation followed by an outdoor experience where you'll learn how to identify and appreciate the value of these plants.

This one-day class can be taken in conjunction with "The Woody Plants of Summer: Non-Native Plants" (August 1) for a combined price of $395 or as a single day course for $210.

Attendees will receive special take-home plants for participating in this informative and exciting new class!

If you've taken Steve's winter course, "Landscape Plants: Identification, Selection and Application," you'll definitely enjoy this one or two-day summer class. If you haven't taken that course, no worries - all you need is a love for plants. We hope to see you there!
