Filled with rare and beautiful plants and incredible locations from around the globe – from Norway to Morocco, Kyoto to Kew, Brooklyn to Buenos Aires, and Madrid to Malaysia – this book will transport you to far-flung places and bygone eras, and consider the future of our botanical havens and the natural wonders they protect.
