Fifty-two of Maryland's public gardens and natural parks are showcased in this book, with descriptions of their horticultural highlights and histories and nearly 240 color photos illustrating their magnificence. Included are 13 historic sites with extraordinary gardens, such as early settlements, plantations, and Gilded Age homes. Maryland is the state that has been given the name "America in Miniature," since almost all types of natural features can be found in its coastal, piedmont, and mountainous terrains. The diverse topography produces an abundance of beautiful gardens and many natural or untamed parks. This book is a must-have for anyone who loves gardens or historical homes, as well as those looking for a keepsake of the great state of Maryland.
