The Melting Pot of Nature

John Weeks discusses  the many unique and beautiful local plants that are not native to U.S. soil. Weeks explains the multitude of ways these plants arrived in the Americas. Some came to be used for food (Dandelion), while some came because of their pretty appearance (the Daisy). Others weren't actually meant to be brought here at all.

Originally aired on Jun 22, 1984.
