Plant Collections

Plants can be grouped together because of their botanical relationship to each other, appearance or historical relationship to humans or each other. Collections based on botanical relationships might include only plants from one family, like camellias or maples. Collections based on appearance might include only plants with white flowers or fragrant flowers. An example of a collection based on history is a primitive plant garden.
