Pierre Dansereau : The Shrub Potentilla belongs to a group of plants, to a species that is present in the Himalayas, in the Pyrenees, in the Alps, in the Rocky Mountains, in the Sierra Nevada. But here is a special dwarf race and they get a bit of snow cover, they have some protection, so that they are certainly very prosperous. The little Goldenrod is also a plant that grows in very sterile soils, and it is extremely vigorous. And of course this beautiful carpet of Juniper, the creeping Juniper: well, it also follows the boreal forest all the way to the Rocky Mountains. It’s an extremely vigorous plant, beautiful in the gardens. It has been introduced in a number of gardens. The horticulturists have become aware that native plants could be of great profit in the process of gardening. And of course, on the very edge, where I will not venture, are these Artemisias that belong to that great western group that is responsible for much of the vegetation in the short grass prairie in cold and dry areas. So we have a great variety of physiological responses to the climate, to the exposure, to the adversities of the habitat. Fernand Dansereau : Magnifique ! C’est beau ça. C’est beau.
