Show #15/6402. Thomas Jefferson - An Old Man, Yet A Young Gardener
Jefferson Loved Flowers
And he did quite a bit with flowers. Jefferson loved flowers, not just to ornament his house but also, in his own words, for their fragrance and for their curiosity. Flower gardens were part of this experimental laboratory.
Jefferson cultivated plants that were brought back by the Lewis and Clark expedition. Many were first grown by Thomas Jefferson in eastern North America. He also collected wild flowers and experimented with them in his gardens.
