A History of Flower Pots and Garden Containers in North America

The first exhibition devoted to the evolution of the common flower pot!
Over 100 pots are on display including finely-detailed Italian terracotta, a wood and cast-iron french tree tub, an English horticultureware rhubarb forcer, traditional American pots, and the latest plastic orchid pots and ornamental urns.

A special flower pot designed in 1995 by Guy Wolff for the centennial celebration of the Botanic Garden of Smith College is a part of the display.
