Tibetan-Chinese Flowers to be Focus of Wanderlust Program
Monday, March 18, 2024


Straining to see buds above the snow?

Get a jumpstart on wildflower season with a free presentation on the flora of Tibet—the most floristically diverse temperate ecosystem on earth.

Bob Moseley will make the presentation at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 21, at Hailey Town Center West. The talk, in partnership with the Idaho Native Plant Society, will be livestreamed and recorded for later viewing at

There are more than 200 species of pedicularis, a genus of green root parasite plants that are reportedly beneficial for stomach aches, ulcers and diarrhea. And there are 180 rhododendron species and 100 primroses there, according to Moseley, former director of conservation for The Nature Conservancy in Illinois.

The area straddles the border of Tibet and China’s Yunnan where alpine and temperate systems meet the subtropical and tropical systems.

The author of “Khawa Karpo: Tibetan Traditional Knowledge and Biodiversity Conservation,” Moseley will also explore the cultural uses and traditions of ethnic groups of the sacred Tibetan Khawa Karpo mountain range in the East Himalayas in his talk.

“Wanderlust: Eastern Himalaya-Wildflower, Diversity, Conservation and Tibetan Traditional Knowledge,” is the third in the library’s monthly series inviting the community to travel the world virtually.
