MBG Flora of China - Plant Tour

Last updated almost 5 years ago

Throughout 2012, Missouri Botanical Garden will be celebrating "The Year of China," recognizing the near-completion of the Flora of China, an international collaborative project to publish a comprehensive catalog of all Chinese wild plants, with full descriptions of 31,500 species and illustrations of about two-thirds of them. Today, China has the richest flora of any country in the northern temperate zone. This EOL Collection, the "MBG Flora of China - Plant Tour," highlights 20+ Chinese plants of significance that MBG visitors can experience first-hand on Garden grounds. The Missouri Botanical Garden is the oldest botanical garden in continuous operation in the nation and a global center for science, conservation, education and horticultural display.
