Allan Armitage: Of Naked Ladies and Forget-Me-Nots

Cylburn Arboretum Association

A world-renowned writer, speaker and researcher, Dr. Armitage will do what he does best – talk about plants and their stories. In Of Naked Ladies and Forget-Me-Nots, he tells the stories behind the common names of some of our favorite and lesser-known plants. From Hooker's Lips to Hairy Balls, Voodoo lilies and Gas Plant, this book of laugh-out-loud yarns is required reading for every plant enthusiast.

Dr. Allan Armitage is well known as a writer, speaker and researcher throughout the world. Born and raised in Canada, he lived in Quebec and Ontario, then in East Lansing, Michigan and Athens, Georgia.  He has worked with landscape plants and greenhouse crops in the North and South, and travels from coast to coast and all parts in between, sharing his passion for plants.  He holds his B.Sc from McGill University in Montreal, otherwise known as The Harvard of the North,  his M.Sc. from University of Guelph and his Ph.D. from Michigan State University.
