In this lavishly illustrated centennial tribute to the Arboretum, Susan Davis Price and John Gregor invite the reader to join them in a celebration of Minnesota’s horticultural year: dramatic snow-shapes, the subtle hues of early spring, masses of tulips and daffodils, the deep yellows and oranges of August, and the apple harvest, with its hardy ‘Wealthies’ and ‘Haralsons’ and wildly popular ‘Honey Crisps.’
This splendid volume is an ode to human ingenuity and determination. Based on a wealth of original sources, historic photos, and interviews, it documents for the first time the Minnesota Arboretum’s evolution from a hopeful experiment into a northern treasure.
