Introduction My last name, Zale, is derived from the Polish name Za Les (pronounced Zah-Less) and means "from the edge of the woods". While my training and career path are in horticulture, my personal botanical interests heavily favor growing species. In combination with my zeal for botanizing near and far, Za Les seemed the perfect title for a blog to discuss my passion and interest in plants.
