Few cities can boast the rich history and diversity of gardens as the Nation’s Capital. City of Gardens provides a guide to 30 public gardens in the Washington area - a look at the traditional and the contemporary; the manicured and the naturalized; the aesthetic and the practical; national treasures and national parks.
Illustrated with spectacular black-and-white photographs, "A City of Gardens" is a regional travel guide written by a highly knowledgeable garden-lover for all who love plants and gardens, botany and horticulture, and landscape architecture in a city rich in all. Barbara Seeber captures the essence of each individual garden, and her enthusiasm shines through in each chapter, making this is a garden feast - much more than a guide book!
