If you’ve learned the parts of a plant, the next step in your wildflower identification journey is to explore some common plant families. Join Sarah and Sam in looking at the features of 5 plant families; Apiaceae (Carrot family), Lamiaceae (Dead-nettle family), Fabiaceae (Pea family), Rosaceae (Rose family) and Rubiaceae (Bedstraw family).To recap the parts of a plant in advance, watch the Parts of a Plant webinar.
