About this Class

Learn the fundamentals of plant ID and houseplant care with an exploration of 50 commonly grown houseplants, succulents, and cacti.

This online course allows you to learn to identify plants on your own schedule. Longwood Gardens is partnering with the NC State University Department of Horticultural Science to provide a fully online introduction to plants. This course will introduce you to plants that can be grown throughout the nation. Through photo stories, video presentations, online fact pages, an e-book, flash cards, vocabulary games, mystery plants, and hundreds of beautiful images, you will learn the key identifying characteristics of these plants and how best to use them in the landscape.

This is an asynchronous, fully online, self-paced, non-credit course. You may participate anywhere that you have access to the internet. You will have access to the course resources 24/7 for the entire 6 weeks of the class and for 6 months after the course ends. There are no required presentations or any set times that you will need to meet online.

In addition to the course fee, you may choose to purchase an optional print copy of the online e-Book that is included with the course.
