Abstract

The author explains how esthetic values have affected the evolution of ornamental plants. In this century, ornamental plant breeders have come to have pervasive influence upon urban environments by producing, in the form of living organisms, imagery of nature for our culture. As we move into the era of biotechnics, the values and assumptions of traditional hybridizers may at least temporarily become even more influential, because biotechnicians have not had sufficient time to develop their own esthetic values.
