Chapter Six offers tours of the three gardens’ living collections, as well as discussions with taxonomists about how they decide what plants to display and how they organize their field collecting projects. Their representational challenges are immense—in the field and in the garden—and these botanists are well-aware they contend with a public whose attention is notoriously limited and generally not oriented towards encountering vegetative life forms.
