Synopsis: American Gardens of the Nineteenth Century is the final of three authoritative volumes of garden history by Ann Leighton. This witty and detailed book focuses on nineteenth-century gardens and gardening. Leighton's material for the book was drawn from letters, books, and other primary sources. Throughout the book are reproductions of contemporary illustrations and descriptive listings of native and new plants that were cultivated during the nineteenth century. Leighton gives much attention to influential people such as plant explorers and designers of public parks. Not only does she record the development of gardening, but she also shows the historical growth and change in nineteenth-century America.

Companion volumes by Ann Leighton

Early American Gardens "For Meate or Medicine"
American Gardens in the Eighteenth Century "For Use or for Delight"

From the Back Cover: 'Leighton combines impeccable and original scholarship, broad and deep knowledge of plants, and a clean prose style that is delightful to read.' --New York Times Book Review
