Bartram’s Garden Talk

(March 25, 2018 at 2:00 pm )
Topic: America’s “Ancient Garden:”
The Bartram Botanic Garden 1728-1850.
This talk will trace the careers of John Bartram and his son William, their travels in North America, and some of their important plant introductions, including the Franklinia or Franklin Tree. Bartram’s Garden has been preserved as a Philadelphia city park since 1891, and recent restoration work has seen the recreation of a garden from the third Bartram generation, the “Ann Bartram Carr Garden,” and a new “Bartram Trail” along the west bank of the Schuylkill, which will reconnect the garden to Center City Philadelphia
Location: Linwood Library
