For the first time, the complete story of 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 contemporary, 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 the United States and one of the only gardens to achieve National Historic Landmark status. 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. The Garden is also a world leader in botanical science and conservation, with operations in thirty eight countries around the globe.
