Magnolia Plantation And Gardens

MAGNOLIA PLANTATION AND GARDENS, located on the Ashley River near Charleston, South Carolina, is one of the world's last surviving nineteenth-century romantic gardens. It is where the largest and most ancient azalea and camellia collections were developed and where azaleas were first planted out of doors in a landscape setting. The plantation also provides a unique experience for visitors. Its swamp garden boardwalk allows visitors to enjoy birding all year round; the nature train takes visitors on a long ride throughout the plantation; a street of slave cabins has been meticulously restored to provide an excellent history tour of African-American life; and the house tour shows the nature of post-Civil War life.

wonderful book for any gardening lover. My husband loves to garden - its his de-stressor, and having books like this one helps him get ideas on what to plant and how. The photos are beautiful as well in this book. Overall a very nice choice for anyone who loves either the Magnolia Plantation itself, or gardening in general.

Great book and beautiful pictures justify purchasing for a gift!!

Beautiful, well put together book. Lovely keepsake if you have visited the plantation. We were there when very little was blooming so the book showed us what it is like on full bloom. Lovely!

Great history of the gardens, a good reference for planning a romantic landscape
