While it is no secret that exploration of the Americas radically changed Britain, the impact that the introduction of plants from the New World had on the English garden is also considerable. Tracing this influence, this beautifully photographed survey examines the gardens of Bletchley Park and Blenheim Palace, as well as the American Ambassador's London residence and the ancestral home of George Washington's family. Here too are the memorial gardens devoted to Pocahontas, Mohamet Weyonoman, and John F. Kennedy, plus a look at how the American heiresses known as the "Dollar Princesses" made their mark on English landscaping.
