Memorial to David Douglas
Memorial to David Douglas
David Douglas (17991834), the influential Scottish botanist and plant collector, trained as a gardener before attending Perth College and Glasgow University.

His genius for botany flourished and his talents came to the attention of the Royal Horticultural Society. With the society's backing he went to North America in 1823, beginning his life-long fascination with the region's flora. He discovered thousands of new species and introduced 240 of them to Britain, including the Douglas fir.

Douglas continued to explore and discover plant species until his death in the Sandwich Islands (present-day Hawaii) in 1834.
