Online talk: China – Beyond the crowds

2nd March, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This talk covers the flora of Yunnan and Sichuan.  You will see the scenery and plants encountered in a trip through the mountains of southwestern China in 2019.  The area is a mecca for botanists and has attracted plant hunters and seed collectors for the last 100 years on account of its exceptional botanical diversity.  The talk is lavishly illustrated with pictures of plants such as meconopsis, primula, corydalis and many other genera.  You will be enthralled by the type and numbers of plants seen as well as the amazing landscapes of the area.

Richard Green is a retired chartered accountant.  He has been Treasurer of the Scottish Rock Garden Club since November 2014.  This is a joint talk with SRGC.

As a keen walker, Richard is interested in seeing plants in the wild.  He has botanised in many mountain ranges in Europe, including the Picos, Pyrenees, Dolomites and Alps.  He has visited the Atlas in Morocco, and both the Rockies and the Andes in the Americas.  Further afield he has looked for, and photographed plants in New Zealand and western China.
