The American Dream

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

Sponsored by the Scottish Rock Garden Club

On display in the magnificent DouglasPavilion, this exhibition features striking photographic images captured by Julia Corden, a modern day plant hunter, international botanical tour guide and Explorers Garden Manager.

Last Summer, Julia travelled to Colorado, Utah and Montana to study the flowers in the high altitude regions of the Rocky Mountains in the USA. Her photographic exhibition captures the wonderful diversity of both landscape and plant life – from up close images of the little Lewisia rediviva growing in baked soils, to sweeping views of beautiful high mountain meadows, full of brilliant flowers and huge skies.

The exhibition runs from 1st April to 29th October. Entrance is free with Explorers entry.
