For the primary time, the entire story of essentially the most beautiful place in St. Louis is told in Missouri Botanical Garden: Green for 150 Years. This oversized, hard cover book is illustrated with over 400 photos, both archival and latest, and a foreword by Dr. Peter H. Raven, the Garden s president and Time magazine`s Hero for the Planet.
Founded in 1859, the Missouri Botanical Garden is the oldest botanical garden in america and one of the most only gardens to succeed in National Historic Landmark status. 100 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. The Garden may be a world leader in botanical science and conservation, with operations in thirty eight countries around the world.
