Synopsis:

Oftentimes, we wonder not what our gardens grow, but who our gardens grow. Legends in the Garden is a collection of the history, places, people, and stories behind the names of some of America’s most well known plants. These anecdotes, researched and written by authors Linda L. Copeland and Allan M. Armitage, are a compilation of forty-six of these little known origins of plant names.

Book Description: "Legends in the Garden introduces 46 people and places--some familiar, others unknown--associated with popular garden plants. Who were Nellie Stevens ("IIex x 'Nellie Stevens') and Frances Williams ("Hosta sieboldiana 'Frances Williams')? This delightful book combines accounts of the lives of these intriguing characters with descriptions of the plants that bear their names and the stories of their chance discoveries or deliberate breeding.

Book Description Cool Springs Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. One spring morning a lady walking through a garden in the Midwest was fascinated by a row of handsome, vigorous hollies. They were just what she needed for her own garden, and she asked her host what they were. Those are Nellie Stevens hollies, was the reply. She looked again and couldn t help but wonder about the name. Who in the world is Nellie Stevens, and how did her name ever become associated with this plant? She noted other intriguing names, and she asked similar questions. She saw a beautifulblue clematis and wondered if Betty Corning was still alive and what stories she had to tell.She wondered about the places and people whose names are associated with so many popular garden plants. She is not alone. If necessity is the mother of invention, curiosity is the mother of research. In many cases, we wonder not what our gardens grow, but who our gardens grow. Until now, these accounts have not been compiled and unfortunately, many of the people are disappearing, their stories with them. Now gardeners can enjoy the beauty of their plants and delight in the tales they tell. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781591865230
