The Magic of our Native Spring Wildflowers
March 30, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm$50.00
Every year around this time, something wonderful happens in the Southeast. Numerous
species of our native wildflowers awaken and fill forest and field with a show of diverse color
and form. Many of these plants are ephemeral and, after displaying their spring beauty, go
dormant as trees leaf out. The collection of native plants at Birmingham Botanical Gardens is
the largest in the state, and class participants, after learning some basics about spring
ephemerals, will spend time viewing them and learning their stories. Those attending will also
be able to preview the hundreds of plants that will be available at the Friends of Birmingham
Botanical Gardens’ 50th-anniversary Spring Plant Sale (April 12-14). Led by John Manion, Kaul
Wildflower Garden Curator with the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, this course is
part of the Friends’ Certificate in Native Plant Studies (CNPS) curriculum, but all are welcome.
Cost is $45/members and $50/non-members. For more information and to register, visit
