The Mildred E. Mathias Garden is located on a hilly 7.5-acre site at the edge of campus.  It features plants from California to the Mediterranean and Australia and includes ecozones from the water’s edge to the desert. The photographs in this exhibition were taken over a 5-year period during 12 trips at different times of year. These close-up photographs have been selected to showcase plants that are not commonly grown in the northeast.
Photo above: This is the Channel Island tree poppy (Dendromecon harfordii).
