Photograph by Ernest Henry Wilson (1876-1930), United States, England
June 30, 1914
This photograph was taken during Wilson’s Fifth Expedition for the Arnold Arboretum, to Japan (February 1914-January 1915). His objective for this trip was to study the native forests, cultivated plants, and Japanese horticultural practices. Special attention was directed to Japanese flowering cherries and Kurume azaleas. Wilson also made important contacts with Japanese colleagues. His notes from this expedition are available in the Ernest Henry Wilson (1876-1930) papers, 1896-1952.
