About this artwork

Euan Cox was one of the most knowledgeable and experienced horticulturalists of his day. Born in the Carse of Gowrie, between Dundee and Perth, Cox's family had made a fortune from the jute industry. This gave him the means to create a beautiful garden around the family home of Glendoick, filled with rare plants obtained on overseas expeditions. Two plants, found in Upper Burma in 1919, bear his name - Berberis Coxii and Juniperis Coxii - and Glendoick is still a renowned nursery specialising in rhododendrons and azaleas.
