Presented by Arnold Arboretum at Arnold Arboretum, Boston MA

Jul 20 2019
Guided Tour - Angiosperms and Gymnosperms: The Basics

Learn the differences between plants that flower and have enclosed seeds, and plants with “naked seeds,” on this guided tour at the Arnold Arboretum.

What better place to look for the differences between angiosperms (plants that flower and have enclosed seeds), and gymnosperms (plants with "naked seeds," including conifers, ginkgos and others), than in the Arnold Arboretum landscape, where over 15,000 plants reside in a living museum. Join our docent as she points out trees in both groups and describes the characteristics of each.

This tour meets at the Centre Street Gate.
