Pam Eveleigh
(Calgary)

Modern Plant Hunting

Learn how state of the art technology can be combined with information about historic quests to find plants.

Pam will lead us through her personal experience of pursuing renowned people, places and plants to rediscover species not seen in over a century. Her research has resulted in modifications to the Genus Primula.

Pam is a founding member of the Calgary Rock and Alpine Garden Society (CRAGS). She is internationally known for her web site www.primulaworld.com, the heart of which is an image gallery containing thousands of images of Primulas. She is an avid hiker and photographer and recently travelled to China on a grant given by the Scottish Rock Garden Club to search for Primulas.

Santa Fe NARGS Meeting

Margaret, our new President, attended the NARGS annual meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico in September 2014. She will give an overview of the Santa Fe agenda with a slideshow of the open gardens and scenery around Santa Fe, providing a glimpse of plant life in the New Mexico high desert.

Margaret has handled advertising for CRAGS since 2010. Her alpine gardening interest dates back to her visits to open gardens through the Calgary Horticultural Society, where she was always enamored by the small plants with dainty flowers.

Anna Leggatt
East York, ON

Spring Wildflowers
of the
Zagros Mountains, Iran

Spectacular photos of Fritillaria, Iris, Muscaria, and Tulipa caught our eye in Anna Leggatt’s article about her trip to the Zagros mountains of Iran in the NARGS Quarterly of Fall 2013. Now we’ll get to see her presentation featuring high limestone mountains in a country with 8000 species of plants, one quarter of them endemic.

Anna loves shrubs, bulbs, rock gardening, wildflowers, Japanese effects, working with stone and experimenting with her garden’s design. Anna lectures to horticultural societies and writes for several magazines. Her subjects reflect her broad interests and passion for gardening and draw on her world-wide travel experiences and photography of nature.
