Come tour the Garden with Garden Guide Rich Waiton to find both prominent and some lesser-known native Virginia trees, shrubs and perennials. We’ll learn how they fit into the taxonomy (or world-wide botanical order) and relate to other plants of interest which are indigenous to North America and other areas of the world. We’ll discuss the practical implications of native plant terminology including genus, species, cultivar and nativar. Attendees will better understand the interpretive signage at Lewis Ginter and how the common names of some plants can be misleading. Come dressed for the weather and walking in the Garden.
