All in the Family - Ericaceae  with Bruce Palmer

From a world view to our local species, biologist, natural historian, professor, rhododendron student and gardener Bruce Palmer will give a sweeping, fascinating, and well-illustrated view of the heath family.Besides showy rhododendrons, azaleas, and heathers, this family includes delicious berries, like huckleberries, the diverse manzanitas, and some curious, non-green herbaceous species, like Indian Pipe. Bruce will also detail what we mean by plant families, what it means to be a member of the family Ericaceae, why some members of the family evolved where they are, and how their ancestors got there.
