Wave Hill Horticultural Lectures are devoted to landscape design and the meaning of our interactions with plants and the natural world. This year’s distinguished lecturers offer a walk down memory lane. But these presentations are not simply an indulgence in nostalgia because the past strongly informs the present in the three subjects we address. After a quarter of a century practicing architecture, Jason Eslamieh has established a research nursery in Tempe, Arizona to pursue a 20-year passion for studying and writing about three genera of the Burseraceae family. The first was the subject of his 2011 publication Cultivation of Boswellia, better known to many of us as frankincense. A second volume, on the genus Bursera, is on the way. His March lecture illuminates the diversity and habitat of Boswellia, outlines its venerable history and speculates about its future.
This is the final lecture on the 2013 series.
