Christopher Lloyd knows perennials as well as anyone else alive. Now available in paperback, this book represents the fruit of Lloyd's lifetime study of perennials. Genus by genus, he sets down everything he has learned, thought, seen, tried, liked, or regretted about them, individually or in combination. He is formidably knowledgeable, iconoclastic, opinionated, and always entertaining. Here, meticulously recorded, are his expert opinions about numerous varieties of flowering garden plants, from Acanthus to Zigadenus, accompanied by spectacular photographs from Jonathan Buckley and others. Any gardener will find themselves opening this book time and again with pleasure and the frequent thought, "I MUST grow this one, too."

Book Description:

Sets down everything the author has learned about these plants, genus by genus.

From the Publisher:

This is Christopher Lloyd s most important book since the publication thirty years ago of his landmark The Well-Tempered Garden, representing the fruit of his lifetime s study of perennial plants. Genus by genus, he has set down everything he has learned, thought, seen, tried, likes or regrets about them, individually or in combination. Ever the scholar among professional gardeners, he is formidably knowledgeable, iconoclastic, sometimes dyspeptic or even rude, and always entertaining. He makes us see and he makes us think. In his own words, for good or ill, here you have the voice of an individual rather than the omniscience of a faceless team of contributors . . . I love plants: at least that must be clear perhaps even infectious.
