Explore the exciting world of broadleaved evergreens - from what you think you know about hollies, wished you knew about mahonias, and always wanted to know about camellias, and many other plants from UDBG's plant collection, including Persea, Kalmia, Leucothoe, Osmanthus, Rhododendron, Gaultheria, Pieris, among others. Broadleaved evergreens provide structure and interest in any garden, all seasons. The course will cover cultural (light and soil requirements, ease of growth), as well as landscape characteristics. The lab will provide an opportunity to view the plants in the landscape and discuss their identification more fully. In the event of snow, classes will be held Thursday evening.

Please join Longwood Graduate Program Director Dr. Robert Lyons and UDBG Director Dr. John Frett in a lively repartee between two dynamic plant gurus as they describe and illustrate many of the perennial and woody plants offered in the UDBG plant sale catalog and at the sale. A highly respected leader in horticulture, Dr. Lyons was former Director at the JC Raulston Arboretum and co-founder and Director of Virginia Tech Horticulture Gardens prior to coming to Delaware.
