Draper only Botanical Names in the Greenhouse

Common plant names can be misleading, but are so much easier to say.  We use the genus and variety to make sure we are all speaking about the same plants.  Since Latin can be difficult to pronounce, we’ve invited an expert.  Please join us for a lecture on how to correctly use Latin in the nursery and greenhouse.  We will learn some useful tools to pronounce botanical names that are new to us.  The last 15 minutes will be open for questions.
