Mints: A Family of Herbs and Ornamentals Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mints: A Family of Herbs and Ornamentals is the first book to survey the entire mint family (Lamiaceae or Labiatae), which includes a surprising variety of plants long valued for their herbal and ornamental uses, from rosemary, sage, and thyme to lavender and peppermint. Most mints are easy to grow, sometimes notoriously so, and highly resistant to pests and diseases, which adds to their garden value. Written in a friendly and accessible style, the book features chapters on history and lore, modern uses, cultivation, and distinctive characteristics and classification; a catalog of species and cultivars in 67 genera; and a glossary.

Book News Annotation:

With some of its illustrations from the rare book collections of the Missouri Botanical Garden, at which the author served as editor/ publications manager, this book aims to be the first to comprehensively survey the entire Lamiaceae/Labiatae family. Lawton presents mints in history and lore, health and home, as weeds, their pests and diseases, botany, and a catalog of many genera. Includes line drawings, color plates, and a glossary.
