OPGC contributes to the rescue of an endangered plant.

Aug. 25, 2015

An article in the 16 August 2015 Columbus Dispatch tells the story of the OPGC's contribution to the preservation and propagation of a rare and endangered plant in central Ohio, Arabis patens, or rock cress.  Through the efforts of curator Susan Stieve and OPGC staff and students, plants of rock cress were grown in the greenhouses and seed was produced by hand pollination.  The seeds are being stored at the OPGC.  Some plants were started and reintroduced into an appropriate habitat in the city of Dublin, OH in a collaborative effort with the city's horticulturists.
