Monocot Garden Mission Statement
The Monocot Garden is designed to bring the visitor's attention to what a Monocot plant is. The Monocot refers to a group of flowering plants that are defined by having seeds that contain a single (mono-) embryonic leaf known as a cotyledon. The flower parts are arranged in the most part in multiples of three. The venation is parallel and scattered. The roots are adventitious. The growing point is at the top of the stem and for the most part die at the end of the season. The garden presents samples of monocots. See below for an informational one sheet on the Monocot Garden.
