Biggest and Smallests: CNPS Yerba Buena Speaker Program

August 6, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Speaker: Kipp McMichael

Break out your rulers, scales and metrics for a tour of California flora with an eye toward maxima and minima. We’ll start with familiar status-holders like giant sequoia and duckweed but move on to more esoteric categories and the biggests and smallests therein: The largest flower? The longest vine? The biggest fruit? The smallest fern? The largest club moss? Let’s explore what lies at the disparate ends of the phytological scale!

Kipp McMichael is a professional web developer and an amateur naturalist with several degrees, none of them plant-related (but don’t tell that to his overly-large plant collection). He grows native plants, succulents and far too many bulbs in his home garden in Berkeley, CA.
