What is an American garden?”What is an American garden?” (Yes, there are TV shows, too).
This question can’t really be answered, considering the size of the world and the complexity of its landscapes. American gardens are a reaction to the natural landscape that surrounds them, from the Arizona desert to the heart of New York, even though they protest against the climate in some cases.
American Gardens takes us to downtown Miami from Bob Hope’s house, showing the diversity and colour of the American garden, all under Derry Moore’s trained eye.
