DALLAS – Southern Botanical hosted a group of college professors from China as part of an international exchange program developed at Texas A&M University.

The program, run by the Texas A&M Department of Horticulture, is partially funded by a grant from the US Department of Agriculture. Participants represented several Chinese universities, including: Qingdao Agricultural University, Jiangsu Academy of Agriculture Science, Huazhong Agricultural University, Beijing Forestry University, South China Agricultural University, China Agricultural University and Yunnan Academy of Agriculture Science.

The group spent the afternoon visiting some of the residential and commercial properties for which Southern Botanical provides garden management services.

The group is travelling around the state of Texas visiting growers, suppliers and, in the case of Southern Botanical, landscapers. They visited two high-end residential properties and one commercial property. They also received a full facility tour with the overall goal of becoming more familiarized with the green industry in the US.

Properties featured on the tour represented a range of styles and plantings. They experienced the recently installed native prairie meadows of a local national archive facility, the rambling fairy tale world of a Dallas residence designed to feel like Middle Earth, and sprawling wildflower meadows blended with modern architecture.
