Virginia Hildebrandt – Newfoundland Plants – where to find them and what to look for

January 10th, 2016. 2PM. Toronto Botanical Garden

Our guest speaker, Virginia Hildebrandt, will share with us her experiences in a beautiful part of Canada. Her talk is entitled “Newfoundland Plants – where to find them and what to look for”. Newfoundland is home to not only to our native Rhododendron canadense but to other plants related to it, members of the Family Ericaceae, as well as a variety of other interesting plants that coexist in the acidic moist bogs and barrens of our windy island to the east.

Virginia has grown and loved plants for most of her life.  As well, she has a B.Sc. in Biochemistry and a M.Sc. and Ph.D in Plant Physiology. She worked at Stokes Seeds for 10 years doing seed research and then set up her own Micropropagation facility, where she provided clones to the wholesale industry for 12 years till retirement. Virginia still has a large flower and vegetable garden.
