Need help learning or teaching plant material identification? Floral Design 1: Plant Material ID can help. MDS641 is a PowerPoint CD-ROM that is composed of several sections.

  • Flower Profiles details 54 cut flowers, with photographs, pronunciations, and information on colors, availability, vase life, care/handling, and design tips.
  • Foliage Profiles details 36 foliages (including some you can harvest locally) with information on availability, vase life, care/handling, and design tips.
  • Dried Materials illustrates 18 different plant materials that dry well and are useful in designs; also shows designs constructed entirely with dried plant materials.
  • Quizzes on flowers and foliages contain all the photographs without names--useful for drill and practice. Each photograph has a sound file so you can get immediate feedback on ID by listening to the pronunciation.
  • Interactive Quizzes let the viewer answer onscreen questions by choosing among three photographs. Immediate audio and text feedback is provided.
  • Handling Techniques gives detailed instructions on the 5 major ways cut flowers and foliages are stored.

Every cut flower and foliage from the Illinois and national cut flower and foliage ID lists is covered in MDS641.

MDS641-10 Quiz Pack is a set of 10 identical CD-ROMs with only the quizzes and interactive quizzes. Useful to issue to students for self study in the horticulture classroom, the school computer lab, or at home.
