Zellerbach Garden

Strybing Arboretum
San Francisco, California

The Zellerbach Garden of Perennials is considered to be a prime example of work done by leading landscape architects who broke with the Beaux Arts tradition during the mid 20th century. The garden is at the end of the main axis in the arboretum and functions as a focal point. As the arboretum has evolved over recent decades, the importance of the axis and focal point has increased. The new design is more in scale with its place in the arboretum and allows for expansion of the perennial collection.
