About this book

The Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California, are a remarkable showcase of exotic plants from all over the world, and this lavishly illustrated volume presents a comprehensive look at these diverse plantings, from towering landmark trees to minuscule desert succulents. This book's 270 colour illustrations feature highlights from the Huntington's sixteen specialized gardens, which comprise twenty thousand kinds of plants, with as many as eighteen hundred rose species and cultivars, twelve hundred camellia cultivars, and five thousand cacti and succulents. This new edition of "The Botanical Gardens at the Huntington" includes a section about the Chinese Garden, which opened in February 2008.
