Plantwise Walk: Perfect Flowers

Meet at Perkins Visitor Center
Wave hill Plantwise Walk Perfect Flowers credit Wave Hill md 2

Flowers are tools to attract pollinators to what is housed between the colorful petals. We will take a close look into what makes a flower “perfect” (containing male and female reproductive organs) and other sexy combinations in the world of flower morphology. Severe weather cancels.

Advance registration encouraged, online or by calling 718.549.3200 x251. Day-of registration based on availability and not guaranteed.

About the Plantwise Walk Series:
A series led by Jess Brey, Wave Hill’s Senior Horticultural Interpreter, each “walk and talk” will focus on a specific group of plants, encouraging a deeper relationship with some of the special plants that grow at Wave Hill. Topics explored may be nomenclature, ethnobotany, history and plant culture, such as pruning, germination and propagation. As the series title indicates, this is a program for the curious; adult participants with some plant knowledge will get the most out of these programs.

Walks follow a variety of routes along mixed-material pathways and varying elevations.
