The Garden Conservancy is celebrating their 25th anniversary with this beautifully illustrated book that documents a selection of the outstanding public and private gardens they have worked with since their founding in 1989. The book showcases eight gardens the conservancy has helped preserve and 43 of the more than 3,000 private gardens across the country that have been opened to the public through its Open Days Program. The private gardens cover a wide variety of regions, habitats, designs and plants, from early spring through autumn. Featured private gardens include Panayoti Kelaidis's rock garden in Denver, Colorado; Deborah Whigham and Gary Ratway's collection of native and Mediterranean plants and earth walls in Albion, California; and James David's imaginative mix of heat-tolerant plants, rills and pools in Austin, Texas
