MAGNOLIA PLANTATION AND GARDENS MAGNOLIA PLANTATION AND GARDENS, located on the Ashley River near Charleston, South Carolina, is one of the world's last surviving nineteenth-century romantic gardens. It is where the largest and most ancient azalea and camellia collections were developed and where azaleas were first planted out of doors in a landscape setting. The plantation also provides a unique experience for visitors. Its swamp garden boardwalk allows visitors to enjoy birding all year round; the nature train takes visitors on a long ride throughout the plantation; a street of slave cabins has been meticulously restored to provide an excellent history tour of African-American life; and the house tour shows the nature of post-Civil War life. Derek Fell is widely known as one of the world's finest garden photographers. He made his first visit to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens thirty years ago and has published articles in Connoisseur, Americana, Woman's Day, Pace, Southern Accents, and other magazines. He has also authored books about the gardens of artists Monet, Renoir, Cezanne and Van Gogh, for which he has been honored with Best Book and Best Photography awards from the Garden Writers Association. Examples of his work can be found on his Web site: www.derekfell.net.

"This history of the oldest surviving church south of Virginia and the only remaining colonial cruciform church in South Carolina is one of wealth and poverty, acclaim and anonymity, slavery and freedom, war and peace, quarreling and cooperation, failure and achievement"--Dust jacket.

Beyond the magnificent old walls and gates of Charleston's distinguished historic homes lie lush, private gardens. The Private Gardens of Charleston presents a detailed view of twenty-five of these spaces in color photographs and essays that explore the diversity of gardening interests and styles, ranging from the elegant distinction of a "typical" Charleston garden--narrow, shady, and verdant and accented with the glorious color of azaleas and camellias--to an exotic garden containing a rare collection of tropical palms. Louisa Pringle Cameron presents the story of each garden with perception and intelligence, describing its background and unique artistry. She provides useful information on a variety of plants, trees, and gardening techniques that are successful in this region. The owners tell of their achievements and mistakes, offer solutions to design and other challenges, and recall the personal and social joys a garden can inspire. Complementing the text are Cameron's vibrant color photographs, which capture texture, design, and ornamentation of the gardens in detailed perspectives, as well as inviting views from porches and walkways. The Private Gardens of Charleston offers an intimate tour of places that are rarely seen by the public, making it an ideal volume for those who love gardening, landscape design, and the beauty of nature.
