Led by Maggie S. Knapp, Horticulturist and Ephemeral Enthusiast
Celebrate the coming of spring with a tour of the ephemeral wildflowers. Spring ephemerals are a special group of woodland wildflowers that bloom before the canopy trees "leaf-out" to take advantage of early spring's sunlight before competition begins in earnest. This special group includes such beloved plants as trillium, trout lilies, hepatica, Virginia bluebells, and lady's slippers, to name a few.
Jenkins Arboretum excels in this woodland wildflower group. maggie Knapp, Head Horticulturist at Jenkins, will lead the tour among these precious plants.
Free of charge. All are welcome. Pre-registration required. Class size is limited.
