Selected Landscape Plants. Slide Script.
This slide script, part of a series of slide scripts designed for use in vocational agriculture classes, deals with commercially important woody ornamental landscape plants. Included in the script are narrations for use with a total of 253 slides illustrating 92 different plants. Several slides are used to illustrate each plant: besides a view of the form of each plant, close-ups of the flower, fruit, or foliage are provided. Plants are grouped by type, and, in each group, plants are treated alphabetically by genus. The categories are deciduous trees, deciduous shrubs, ground covers, broadleaf evergreens, and needled evergreens. At the end of the script are two indexes: one for the scientific name and family of each plant and the other for the common names. The introduction to the script also includes suggestions for its use and recommended additional learning activities. (MN)
