The next stop on my tour of Seattle with Rob Wagner and Arthur Lee Jacobson was the University of Washington where Arthur and I co-lead a guided tour of the medicinal garden. Here I found many plants in my book notably Crambe cordifolia and Laportea canadensis. I took very few pictures as I was busy talking and listening to Arthur! However, this garden, which has some 1,000 species is definitely worth a visit!
We also visited the Life Sciences Building which houses an interesting collection of less hardy plants. It is planned to be demolished and replaced with a new larger building……
