Primeval plants can be both artistically and educationally enriching elements of landscape design. While numerous modern relatives of plants that flourished in the dinosaur days are readily incorporated into landscape or even street plantings, understanding their evolutionary history and past habitats together can help us generate dynamic plantings resembling ancient environments. In this presentation, you will learn about several lineage's of plants that flourished during the dinosaur days, see examples of modern relatives readily available for landscaping. You will also learn about planting situations suitable for their display and be provided strategies for learning about past plant communities in your region.
1. Understand the range of primeval plants commonly available for landscape design
2. Understand aspects of evolutionary history and habitats of several key plant groups
3. Understand planting situations suitable for primeval plant display
