Knowing Native Plants: The Amazing Aster Family Part 1, Confusing Yellow Composites (Virtual Program)

Saturday, August 29 10:00 am
Saturday, August 29 12:00 pm


Join Naturalist Mary Anne Borge as we focus on the late summer and fall blooming confusing yellow composites, including goldenrods, sunflowers, coneflowers, and beggar-ticks. Mary Anne will cover the features that make aster family members unique, as well as the relationships these plants have with the insects, birds, and other animals that depend on them. Find out which of these species might be good candidates for your own garden.
