Plants in the Foothill section occur from Calgary west to the Rockies and east of Calgary in the Cypress Hills. Plants in the Prairie section occur east of Calgary in southern Alberta. Because many plants overlap the sections, we recommend using the search engine to see where images of plants can be found in more than one section.
Robert Bielesch has a large collection of photos that include a complete plant cycle from flowering to fruiting stages as well as leaf characteristics for many plants. If interested in a particular plant for such photos, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
