Theme gardens have been popular for centuries. Some are whimsical, practical or even political. A theme garden makes a visible statement about what's important to the gardener, though the forms gardens take within a single theme can be as individual as the people who plant them. Not surprisingly, this year the most popular theme is a salute to American nationalism. "People loved our red, white and blue petunia hanging baskets and containers," says Kathy Miller, head grower at Bluemount Nurseries in Monkton.

LEWISBERRY, Pa. - On a gray day with sleet falling over the frozen fields of his farm in central Pennsylvania, Barry Yinger was telling the story of his search for a hardy camellia 20 years ago on an island off the coast of Korea. This veteran plant explorer, fluent in Japanese and Chinese, is transforming American gardens with hundreds of the exotic plants he finds in Asia. But pursuing a hardy camellia seemed like a quest for the Holy Grail. "It's very cold and bleak there, with these awful winds that come down from Mongolia," said Yinger, 52, who has led some 60 plant expeditions to Asia.
