Botanical Congress Stamps
On August 23, 1969, the U.S. Post Office released a set of four stamps to mark the meeting of the 11th International Botanical Congress in Seattle, Washington. Portrayed on the 6-cent stamps were famous plants associated with the four regions of the country.
First day of issue ceremonies were held in Seattle on the day prior to the opening of the Botanical Congress.
The Franklinia, now extinct in the wild, was once native to Georgia.
