Special Lan Su Merchandise


The Garden Shop offers several select items that are unique to our garden and in many cases unique to the shop. On your next visit, be sure to look for:

  • Listen to the Fragrance: Literary Inscriptions in Lan Su Chinese Garden by Dr. Charles Q. WuNow in it's second edition and updated with all new color photographs and maps, Dr. Wu's definitive work on poetry and couplets in the garden is a must read for any fan of Lan Su. 
  • The Stones and the Poet—A story based on Two Stones, a poem written in 826 by Bai Juyi. Written by local author Lynn Connor and illustrated by Lu Kesi (a long-time Lan Su volunteer), the book features the rich cultural history of the Lake Tai, or taihu, standing stones seen in garden.
  • Art exhibitions on display in the garden, featuring the work of local, national and internal artists. Most work is available for sale and Lan Su is able to ship nationally.
  • An impressive collection of cards featuring the beauty of the garden.
