Bulbs, corms, rhizomes, tuberous roots and tubers oh my! These are plant structures that are found in plants we call geophytes. These plants use underground storage organs to hold water and energy throughout that plant’s life cycle and chances are, you’ve seen many of these before. There are a variety of native geophytes, most notably prairie celestials, Nemastylis geminiflora, and meadow garlic, Allium canadense, to name a few. In this class, Dr. Alice Le Duc will introduce you to the geophytes native to Texas, teach you how to care for them and tell you which ones you should plant in this fall for spring blooms.

This class will take place online via Zoom. Registrants will receive an email with the link for the Zoom meeting prior to the event. Make sure you have Zoom installed and set up to participate.
