Washington Native Plant Society Central Puget Sound Chapter Meeting

Richard Ramsden will provide an examination of wildflowers in their native habitats from roadsides to mountain peaks of Washington. Native species discussed will include many rare or rarely seen. Their unique qualities will be highlighted as well as suggestions on where to see them this spring and upcoming summer. The program is intended for everyone with an interest in native plants: beginner or advanced, hiker or gardener.

The speaker is a longtime member of WNPS. Besides travelling extensively throughout Washington to seek out wildflowers in their native habitats, he also cultivates many in his Seattle garden and nursery. His photos have been included in many articles and books on western natives and his talks on this topic have been shared with groups from Vancouver BC to Portland OR.
