Book Description:

This sumptuous guide to heirloom plants -- species that have been in cultivation for at least a century -- provides all the information and advice needed to grow these enduring favorites in any garden. Here is an enchanting and diverse selection of plants from the familiar to the exotic, as well as explanations on how to use them in an array of garden designs.

Many garden types are covered, including:
-- Cottage gardens
-- Formal topiary gardens
-- Wildflower gardens
-- Meadow gardens
-- Antique kitchen gardens
-- Container gardens

This delightful journey through our horticultural heritage is enhanced with informative biographies of many of the plants, including where they originated and when they were introduced to the cultivated garden, as well as engaging profiles of the intrepid, often eccentric, plant collectors who traveled the world in search of unusual varieties.
