Frank Rose “Retires”

Posted Aug 03, 2019

The  plant walk in the Catalinas on Thursday, August 1, was a little different. Frank Rose, the long-time leader has decided to slow down, and to a lot of his friends and followers that means this was the last plant walk he will lead as a “regular”.  It was a cloudy and cool day, and botanizers saw a nice variety of blooms, including Thalictrum fendleri and Salvia arizonica. Lots of great food was eaten afterward.

Frank has been a singularly powerful  advocate for native plants.  Arizona Native Plant Society,  his friends, his fans, and his followers have all been extremely grateful for his powerful leadership in putting nature’s bounty at the forefront of our lives.

Frank, may all your future plant walks be as sweet.
