Plant identification program
Have you admired a friend’s garden but don’t know what those flowers are or how to grow them? Have you seen a shrub blooming along a highway and wondered what it is? Do you have a mystery plant in your yard that you can’t identify? Liz Street, a member of the Native Plant Society of Texas’ Cross Timbers chapter, will discuss plant identification at the group’s June meeting in Weatherford.
With demonstration plants on hand, Liz will present tips and strategies for learning about and identifying plants. She will answer general plant questions and offer resources to take you further in identifying plants. Along with other members of the NPSOT chapter, she can help visitors identify plant specimens if they bring samples or photos.
Herself a transplant from New Jersey, Liz is now a Parker County Master Gardener, is co-chairman of the project gardens at the Weatherford Library, is active with Junior Master Gardeners, and is a member of the Parker County Gardeners' Club.
The program “What Is That Plant?” will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 12, at Cherry Park community building, 313 Davis St., in Weatherford.
The Cross Timbers Chapter promotes conservation, research and use of native plants in the rich biological region west of Fort Worth. Chapter meetings are held the second Thursday of the month. A short business meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m., followed by socializing and refreshments, and the educational program. The public is always welcome.
