9781604690385: Armitage's Garden Perennials

Originally published in 2000, Armitage’s Garden Perennials quickly became a garden-shelf classic. Beloved for its well-edited plant selection and Armitage’s trusted advice on choosing and caring for the best plants, Booklist named it “an essential addition to gardening collections.”

In this second edition, renowned horticulturist Allan M. Armitage once again features his discerning selection of more than 1250 of the best perennials, over 300 of which are new to this edition. Old favorites like phlox and rudbeckia remain, but gardeners will delight in new introductions like the popular Baptisia “Carolina Moonlight” and Echinacea “Tangerine Dream.”

Each plant entry includes scientific and common names, hardiness zone information, tips on growth and cultivation, and Armitage’s unique and beloved humor. Supported by more than 1300 color photos, 400 of which are new, and rounded out with useful lists of plants for specific situations, this outstanding reference belongs on the shelf of every gardener who values first-rate, authoritative information.
