The Genus Ilex

Holly Intro Sign
The introductory sign for the holly collection.

When the Washington Park Arboretum moved their collection of holly plants (the genus Ilex), I wrote 5 labels to accompany the new exhibit. The hollies were moved to a new area and grouped taxonomically in 4 clades. I wrote an “introduction” panel (above) and one panel for each clade.

I was responsible for researching and writing the text for each panel. The panels and maps were designed by a graphic designer.
