Missouri Botanical Garden: Green for 150 Years

Founded in 1859, the Missouri Botanical Garden is the oldest botanical garden in the United States and one of the only gardens to achieve National Historic Landmark status. Established "for all time for the public good," the Missouri Botanical Garden was from the start a gorgeous place of refuge from the hustle of the city, as well as a place of research, conservation, and learning. One hundred and fifty years later, the Garden is a beloved and beautiful oasis for beleaguered urbanites, with magnificent gardens, historic conservatories, and rare collections of plants. For the first time, the complete story of the Missouri Botanical Garden is told in Missouri Botanical Garden: Green for 150 Years. Beautifully illustrated with hundreds of photos, the book presents rare never-before-seen archival material alongside gorgeous full-color images of the Garden today.
