Description: Ornamental plant horticulture has had a long history in the USA, beginning with the first botanical garden started by John Bartram in Philadelphia in 1728 (Hedrick, 1988). From this modest start, the nursery and horticulture business in the USA was flourishing by the early 19th century. The growth and sale of useful and attractive plant species inspired American plant collectors to travel around the world in search of novel plants.

Keywords: genetic diversity hybridization naturalization plant breeding urban ecosystems Wisteria floribunda Wisteria sinensis
