William and Adam Summer founded the renowned Pomaria Nursery, which thrived from the 1840s to the 1870s in Central South Carolina. The nursery grew into one of the most important nursery suppliers of United States, selling hundreds of cultivated varieties of peach, apple and pear trees, as well as many of the important grand trees founds in towns all across South Carolina and beyond.
James Everett Kibler, Jr. editor of Taking Root, The Nature Writing of William and Adam Summer of Pomaria, provides a wonderfully rich and educational history of the Summer brothers and their amazing early American nursery business.
