For The Cortez Journal
Georg Fritz, horticulturist at Heidelberg, Gauteng, South Africa, talks about his experiences with rare plants and succulents for the South African National Botanical Institute and the Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve. His area of South Africa is very similar to Southwest Colorado and our garden conditions including hot summers, cold winters, and dry conditions.
Join us Monday, Sept. 14 at 1:30 p.m. at the BLM Anasazi Heritage Center on Colo. 184 in Dolores. This program is free and open to the public and will be followed by a tour of the Heritage Center Plaza and Plant Select Demonstration gardens. Fritz will be accompanied by his wife, Margaret, and Dr. Panayoti Kelaidis, senior curator at Denver Botanic Gardens. His talk in Dolores is part of Frit’s multi-state lecture tour in this rare American visit.
