Plants of China: A Friendship and Peace Exhibit and Cell Phone Tour

The Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum are pleased to join UPS, Provident Bank Foundation and the Morris County Parks Commission in sponsoring Plants of China: A Friendship and Peace Exhibit and Cell Phone Tour. The Cell Phone Tour is one of many such programs at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum and provides visitors with extensive cultural and horticultural background of many of the Chinese transplants growing in all our gardens.

The exhibit guide (click on image at left for a large pdf in both English and Chinese) provides background horticultural information, as well as tour directions. One fascinating tidbit found there:

An astonishing 1/8th of the world’s plant species are native to China, including thousands that are found growing nowhere else on Earth.

Take the tour anytime throughout September and October of this year. The program will be repeated in April and May of 2011.
