Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
Since its grand opening in June 2007, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens has become one of Maine's most popular attractions and one of the most distinguished botanical destinations in the country. "Wow!" is the word most often heard from visitors who explore the exquisite gardens, stunning stonework, exceptional natural landscapes, waterfalls, and sculptures.
The goal of the gardens is to preserve the botanical heritage and natural landscapes of coastal Maine. Comprising nearly 250 acres, with numerous themed gardens--including the Lerner Garden of the Five Senses, The Giles Rhododendron and Perennial Garden, and the Burpee Kitchen Garden--miles of trails, and a rich variety of events year-round, the Gardens has something for everyone.
Celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and honoring the sixteen years of planning and construction that went into the Gardens, this book is an inspiring tribute to this paradise on the Maine coast. Loaded with vivid color imagery, information about the Gardens, and practical advice for gardeners, it makes a wonderful keepsake of your trip or a great gift to inspire others to pay a visit to the Gardens.
