With the increasing interest in small-space gardening, Gardens of Historic Charleston provides a wellspring of ideas for planning or improving a garden of limited expanse. Using these ideas, individuals living in condominiums, townhouses, and cluster homes can create their own small-space sanctuaries and can incorporate the exotic plants that have become synonymous with historic Charleston - not only camellias and azaleas, but also tea olive, wisteria, star jasmine, gardenia, oleander, chaste tree, Lady Banksia rose, crape myrtle, and Carolina jessamine.
