Habitat of Chaetanthera spathulifolia (half-way up the Argentinian side of La Cumbre pass, near the Chilean border) SECOND PLACE IN CLASS 3: "Portrait of a plant in the wild"



I am Kees Jan van Zwienen and I live in Alblasserdam, in the west of the Netherlands. On this site I share pictures from various botanical trips around the world. You can also see my publications, explore my photographic collections of plants in cultivation or have a look at my allotment. It is also possible to see the plants and animals by family or group.

If you are looking for pics of a particular genus or species, use the search function instead, this is found at the top of this page.

I give presentations for horticultural and botanical societies on most of the botanical trips featured on this site, feel free to get in touch if you are looking for a speaker.

Have fun exploring this website!
