What do magnolias, bay trees, buttercups, along with the barberries have in common? They are all considered as some of the first-evolved flowering plants. Sometimes referred to as the basal angiosperms and eudicots, these plants have several primitive characteristics that we can easily observe and identify at the family level. Join us as we explore the flowers of these plants in the classroom, then on a short walk through the arboretum. Be prepared for the weather with good walking shoes, rain gear, etc.
