Notes:
From 1980 to 1995 this was the one-acre garden of a plant collector, with species iris, aroids, peonies, bamboos, lycoris and other Chinese flora. The owner collected rhizomes and seeds on many trips to China which were grown in his home garden, traded or offered for sale. Cultivars with variegated foliage were featured, including variegated gingko, goldenrod, lilac, cannas and poison ivy. Climactic conditions in that location included temperatures that could range from above 100 degrees Fahrenheit to below zero degrees in winter, with alkaline fine clay soil. The garden was disassembled when the property was cleared for commercial construction and the plants were sent to public and private garden.
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of articles and lecture notes.
