Great news of an honour to a great Chilean Botanist
« on: September 14, 2021, 08:32:09 AM »
Exciting news from Chile!

Andean botanist Ana Rosa Flores (Anita Flores Watson) has just been announced the winner of the  annual  ′′ Outstanding Women of Our Land ′′ for her scientific work in studying the flora of Chile - a richly deserved recognition for Anita, who is perhaps most  known  here for  her  work on Andean rosulate  violas with her  husband, John M. Watson. Their  interest  in the  rosulate violas and  many plant families is seen in their  regular articles  for  The  Rock Garden and  International Rock Gardener.

Tremendous news of this prestigious award to Anita Flores! With such a detailed and widespread knowledge and love for the flowers of Chile this was surely an award waiting to happen for this popular botanist! Well done Anita!!

Scottish Rock Garden Club sends congratulations to Anita Flores for this honour!
