Abstract

Quarryhill Botanical Garden is a privately operated foundation in the town of Glen Ellen, California. The garden features plants from Asia and the reasons for this are described along with its history. In 2012, the garden celebrated its 25th anniversary and the launch of three significant developments: an education programme for local elementary schools, an ex situ conservation project for Acer pentaphyllum which is endangered and the creation of a heritage rose garden demonstrating the influence of Chinese species roses on modern roses.
