Plant Label


Plant Label

Plant mounters and botanists alike remember Demaree's collections for their plant labels. He was never shy about passing judgement on the specimens he gathered. These labels show how late he worked, his running commentary, and his habit of designating collection site by the nearest Post Office. See also the specimen of Gaura filiformis Small on the next exhibit panel, renamed for Demaree by Raven and Gregory in 1967-68. Missouri Botanical Garden collections. Click on labels to enlarge.
