October 25, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

fall asters

You haven’t truly botanized until you’ve spent time getting to know the grand family of flora that is très compisitae: Asteraceae.

One of the largest families of plants, you are sure to have encountered members of Asteraceae along a trail, in your neighborhood or public gardens, and even at the grocery store floral department. In this virtual class — part presentation and part garden tour — learn about these flowers’ identifying characteristics, botanical anatomy and ecology. Wildflower Center Horticulturist Amy Galloway will point out fall blooming Asteraceae (popular among pollinators) and discuss how to care for them in your own garden or landscape.

The class will not be recorded, so participants must plan to be present for the session in real time. Registrants will receive a link to the Zoom meeting prior to the event.
