About this title


A three-time Quill and Trowel Award winner and Clarkson Potter's most successful gardening author introduces spectacular gardens that express a passion for a single variety of flower, an array of exotic species, and even a color scheme. 400 color photos.


This book is the story of those passionate gardening extremists who turn a particular species of plant into their particular mission in life. Among them, Margaret Sharp and Pam Puryear, who have devoted themselves to collecting and saving old roses. Ken Druse provides exacting prose portraits to go with his beautiful photographs of the plants that are the source of such deep obsession. The result is a book that helps make clear just why gardening is one of the most popular pastimes in the world.
