2020 American Gardens

  • Includes 10 stamps picturing different gardens across America


Stamp Category: 
Commemorative
Value:  55¢ First Class Mail Rate (Forever)
First Day of Issue:  May 13, 2020
First Day City:  Winterthur, Delaware
Quantity Issued:  50,000,000
Printed by:  Banknote Corporation of America
Printing Method:  Offset
Format:  Panes of 20
Tagging:  Phosphor tagged paper, block

Why the stamp was issued:  To celebrate the beauty and history of famous American gardens across the country.

About the stamp design:  Each of the 10 stamps pictures a different photograph of a botanic, country estate, or municipal garden taken between 1996 and 2014.  The gardens are:  Biltmore Estate Gardens (North Carolina), Brooklyn Botanic Garden (New York), Chicago Botanic Garden (Illinois), Coastal Maine Botanic Garden (Maine), Dumbarton Oaks Garden (Washington, DC), Huntington Botanical Garens (California), Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park (Florida), Norfolk Botanical Garden (Virginia), Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens (Ohio), and Winterthur Garden (Delaware).  Photographs all by Allen Rokach.

First Day City:  First Day of Issue postmark from Winterthur, Delaware (home to Winterthur Garden), with a virtual First Day of Issue Ceremony the following day (May 14).

History the stamp represents:  Botanical gardens have been around since the 16th century.  Today, countless examples are found in countries around the world.  These gardens are often open to the public, but their main purpose is to cultivate and learn more about a wide variety of plant species.  Many of these gardens are also involved in conservation and reintroduction programs for endangered species.

In 2020, the USPS issued a set of new Forever stamps honoring 10 different botanical gardens in America.  These gardens are dozens – or even hundreds – of acres in size and are filled with smaller gardens specializing in native plants, cacti and succulents, water plants, trees and shrubs, orchids, and much more.  Many are very popular and welcome thousands of visitors each year.

In a world ruled by technology, it can be easy to forget about the beauty and importance of the natural world.  Plants have a big impact on every single one of us, and the many botanical gardens across the United States are a reminder of that.  They give visitors of all backgrounds the chance to see plants with a wide variety of shapes, colors, and sizes.  Hopefully, visitors learn a little about how to be more mindful of humanity’s impact on the natural world.  With the help of botanical gardens, the plants we know and love will be around for generations to come.
