Science Elevated Series: A Plant Lover’s Guide to the Swiss Mountains

October 5 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

Kaj Anderson, who has explored the Swiss mountains extensively, will share the beautiful alpine plants that grow there and how he reaches these sites where few other horticulturists have been. He is on a team at Bangsbo Botanical Garden (Denmark) responsible for creating the largest crevice garden in the world.

About Kaj Anderson:

Studying alpine plants for over 30 years, Anderson from north Denmark, has traversed the mountains of Italy, Switzerland and Austria, where he discovered new species and recovered species that were believed to no longer exist. Having spoke in almost all the European countries,  Anderson has also been a guide to these special mountains for like-minded horticulturists who are interested in seeing alpines in their natural habitat.


Anderson has been honored with two plants named after him, Saxifraga “Kaj Andersen” and Saxifraga “Viking.” Both are hybrids from Karel Lang, who endeavored to promote good horticulture through his business in the Czech Republic. Today, his own small alpine nursery uses only wild-collected seeds gleaned from all corners of the world that he germinates and grows.
