Description
The New York Botanical Garden, founded in 1891, is one of the world's great collections of plants, the region's leading educational centre for gardening and horticulture, and an international centre for plant research. Designated a National Historic Landmark with collections comprising more than 1 million living plants - including 30,000 mature trees that have been carefully tended and protected since the late 19th century, thousands of tropical and desert plants that visitors can see nowhere else in New York, and many unrivalled features, such as the most beautiful rose garden in America - the Garden exhibits nature at its best. In addition, the Botanical Garden has always been a research institution where generations of scientists have amassed a distinguished, unbroken record of scholarly research. This book, while telling the history of the Garden, offers a lavishly illustrated tour of the grounds and structures on this remarkable 250-acre site in the heart of New York City.
