Plant Studies 2

Course Code: LAND 151

Academic Year: 2024-2025

The integration of broadleaf and coniferous plants in design is fundamental to providing year-round interest in the landscape. Students are also introduced to the value of using dwarf ornamental conifers in the garden. Identification and cultural requirements are studied using the vast selection of plant material in the Humber Arboretum. Emphasis will be placed on native plants and their application in the creation and maintenance of sustainable landscapes. In this continuation of Land 123 Plant Materials 1, students will apply the knowledge gained from lectures and theory components into laboratory settings by identifying, selecting and explaining different plants and plant groups and their characteristics and conditions for proper and healthy growth and maintenance.
