Learn More About Herbarium

The practice of collecting dried plants mounted on paper is believed to have begun in Italy in the 15th century and quickly spread across the rest of Europe. In the beginning, such a collection of dried, mounted plant specimens was known as a hortus siccus (dry garden) or hortus hiemalis (winter garden). The word herbarium was originally used to refer to a book about medicinal plants. French physician and botanist Joseph Pitton de Tournefort (1656-1708) is credited with first applying the term herbarium to a collection of dried, pressed plants.

You can think of an Herbarium as a library of dried plant specimens used for both education and research. (We've always been fans of Herbarium for their decorative beauty!)
