Plant list bot garden

The Plant List bot garden is a botanical garden managed by the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri. It contains over 7,500 specimens of flowering plants and shrubs from more than 3,100 species, most of which are native to North America.

History

The garden was first conceived of and later established by Henry Shaw (1812–1872), a plant explorer, naturalist and philanthropist, who desired to collect plants from all parts of the world, and place them in botanical gardens. He traveled to a number of botanical gardens around the world during his lifetime, collecting plants for these gardens, or in return donating some to them. Upon his return to America, he gave a number of his collections to his alma mater, Oberlin College, and to the Missouri Botanical Garden. During this time he also studied at Yale University.

In 1853, Henry Shaw and Henry J. Beeman were appointed conservators of the garden, which they named after Shaw, in honor of his efforts. In 1895, the garden was renovated by Frederick A. Proctor, who had previously created the Paradise Windows in Washington, DC.
