For Canadian readers, Happy Canada Day! It is perhaps coincidental that the Canadian icon, the maple leaf, represents a genus of plants with members from nearly every part of the world–a fitting symbol for a nation of diversity and multiculturalism. As I alluded to last month, UBC Botanical Garden and Centre for Plant Research is one of the best places in Canada to see maples, with one hundred different species and cultivars.
