Introduction to Grasses Identification

Many people are apprehensive about identifying grasses. With a little practice, however, you can learn to recognize common species using plain English vocabulary and naked-eye characteristics. Lauren Brown, co-author with Ted Elliman of Grasses, Sedges, Rushes: An Identification Guide, will introduce these beautiful and abundant plants. We strongly recommend reading the text for the best learning experience in this class. It can be purchased in our Garden Shop.

Please note: We do not make video or audio recordings of classes or programs available after the fact, because we believe education is interactive, with instructors and students building a community and culture of learning. Some programs may be recorded strictly for instructor-training purposes. Please visit this page to review this and other FAQs about our policies.
