About

Trish Murphy has been interested in native plants and wild places since she was a small child. She was introduced to botany by her father, RJK Murphy, who was a notable woodsman. Trish is past President of the North American Native Plant Society, has coordinated seed exchanges for NANPS and the Toronto Wildflower Society, and has propagated and planted thousands of wildflowers in diverse naturalization projects.

Trish is now developing a native plant nursery at Beaux Arbres, a pioneer settlement farm in Pontiac Region, Quebec. As well as nursery-grown wildflowers for sale, the farm will showcase native plants in gardens and naturalization projects.

She has been a member of the Field Botanists of Ontario since 1996 and she is member of the Botanical Artists of Canada (BAC) and of the Southern Ontario Nature and Science Illustrators (SONSI).
