Subject: [Aroid-l] Aroid Plantmen
appreciated the information given to us on this list by A. Sunjian with respect
to Philodendron ‘xEvansii’ and Philodendron ‘Soledad’.
However, I want to know more about the “Plantsmen” in the
Aroid Plant Family. We can read about the old timey Botanist (e.g. Schott
and Engler & Kraus), the Botanists of our life time (e.g. Cecil Prime and
Monroe Birdsey), and the current Botanists. But how about the Plansmen?
is the story of Anderson’s Red
(Philodendron) and of particular interest would be Bob McCauley of Fantastic Gardens
fame in Miami?
What other Plantsmen should we know about? How about famous Plantsmen in Australia, the UK,
etc.? What cultivars or hybrids are they responsible for?
for one, would really appreciate anyone taking the time to either write this
down or tell me where I might otherwise find it.
