Plant Breeder for a Day

Plant Breeder for a Day

With Curator of Herbaceous Plants Michelle Baudanza

Wednesday, May 15
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This class will begin with a brief history on the Magnolia family as well as an overview of flower morphology. Students will travel into the Garden for a demonstration on how to pollinate a flower. Participants will then have the opportunity to gather pollen to make their own unique cross. Students whose cross produces seed will be contacted in the fall to pick up their seeds or have them mailed. Who knows, you might just create the next new Magnolia cultivar!
