International Peace Garden (North Dakota/Canada)

Post by jp29 »

My good friend and fellow enthusiast Don Vitko of Minot, North Dakota, has been a major plant contributor to the International Peace Garden located on the North Dakota/Canada border:

The International Peace Garden

International Peace Garden - Don Vitko Cactus Collection -- You Tube presentation.

Winnipeg Free Press - a fantastic tale (Don Vitko)

About twenty years ago, Don and I took a great number of approx. 2ft long (62cm) stem tip cuttings from my mature columnars which he rooted in his greenhouse. The following photo shows those plants today growing in The International Peace Garden cactus greenhouse:
