Friends of the Arboretum Lecture

"Plant Exploration for Everyone"
J. C. Raulston, Ph.D., Director

  • Wednesday, August 30, 1995 – 8:00 pm9:30 pm

The image of a "plant explorer" is of someone slogging through a steaming tropical jungle swamp, or being carried through an Asian mountain pass by hirer bearers. But anyone, anywhere can enjoy the excitement of plant exploration to find and use totally unique plants no one has ever seen or used before—often without even leaving their backyard. Learn where and how to find plant variants, how to propagate them, how to evaluate their value, and what to do with them (hint—they won't make you a million dollars).
