Caprifoliaceae Vent. Lonicera Maackii Turcr. Plant specimen from the honeysuckle family collected by N.E. Hansen, 1924

Caprifoliaceae Vent. Lonicera Maacki Turcr. Plant specimen from the honeysuckle family collected by N.E. Hansen, 1924. This plant is native to temperate western Asia, specifically in northern and western China south to Yunnan, Mongolia, Primorsky Krai in southeastern Russia, Korea, and, albeit rare there, central and northern Honshu, Japan. N.E. Hansen (1866-1950) was a Danish-American horticulturist and botanist who was a pioneer in plant breeding. Hansen came to South Dakota in 1895 and became the first head of the Horticultural Department of South Dakota State College. He also served as agricultural explorer for the United States Department of Agriculture. He searched for hardy grasses, fruits, and other plants throughout Europe and Asia and brought them back to the United States to raise or crossbreed with American varieties to produce hardy plants.
