The Introduction of Japanese Plants into North America

Peter Del Tredici, Senior Research Scientist, Emeritus
The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University

Through the pioneering work of collectors and nurserymen, many new Japanese species were introduced to the American gardening public in the late 19th century.

Peter Del Tredici, Senior Research Scientist, Emeritus, of the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, will examine the history behind these early introductions, some of which had a profound impact on both cultivated and wild landscapes across America.

This lecture is made possible by Frank and Toshie Mosher and the USC Emeriti Center’s Noboru Inamoto Endowment for promoting understanding of Japanese culture.
