The American Dream

A photographic exhibition by modern day plant hunter and Explorers Garden Manager, Julia Corden

Sponsored by the Scottish Rock Garden Club

This exhibition in the magnificent David Douglas Pavilion features stunning photographic images captured by Julia Corden, modern day plant hunter, international tour guide and Explorers Garden Manager.

The exhibition shows images from Julia’s 2016 expedition to study flowers at high altitude in the Rocky Mountain Range. The images show the wonderful diversity of the landscape and plant life of the Rocky Mountain Range – from beautiful high alpine meadows full of  flowers with amazing colours and huge skies above, through to little Lewisia rediviva growing on the Steppe in baked soils.

The exhibition runs from 1st April to 1st November. Entrance is free with Explorers entry.
