Plant Studies 1

Course Code: LAND 123

Academic Year: 2021-2022

A variety of native plants and ornamental hybrids are studied to provide students with a broad overview of the different plant categories and their use in the landscape. Students learn to consider a number of characteristics when choosing the right plant for the right location: the design intent (colour, size, shape, etc.) as well as issues of plant suitability for sustainability (cold hardiness, heat tolerance, plant moisture requirements, maintenance requirements, etc.).
