‘From Denver to Seattle, A Shared Gardening Tradition’
We are pleased to have noted plantsman Panayoti Kelaidis, Senior Curator and Director of Outreach for the Denver Botanic Gardens, presenting the 24th annual Miller Memorial Lecture.
Washington State and Colorado represent two key points around the Columbia plateau and Great Basin—a xeric sea-floor in the making which separates Denver and Seattle. Each city has evolved distinctive horticultural traditions reflecting their geography and cultural context. The differences are obvious, but both cities share the Western Cordillera, and have much in common.
Panayoti has extensively explored the Rocky Mountain range and has traveled the world looking for plants that will thrive in the gardens of the interior mountain region. He is notable for his support of native flora as well as the introduction of numerous species and cultivars of top garden performing plants. Panayoti’s travels have brought him to the Northwest several times allowing him the chance to experience our unique climate and several of his plant introductions have thrived in our maritime conditions.
