April showers could very well bring flowers in May, but in the public and botanical gardens that dot North America, there is always something in bloom. The continent’s best gardens and arboretums, like these Top 10 in the United States by our readers, help promote and conserve our planet’s plant diversity, while presenting their vast collections in a stunning and visitor-friendly way.
