Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the world's great plant encyclopedias is available now in English for the first time. This two-volume reference work is a much revised and expanded edition of the German-language original, first published 40 years ago, itself developed through two subsequent editions, and established as an incomparable source of information.

The core of the book is an alphabetical description by genus and species of plants considered hardy in temperate climates and recognized as having garden merit as well as some species tat may be only moderately attractive but are important ecologically as presenting points of botanical interest. Included is much new information on perennials that have come recently into cultivation in Great Britain and North America, as well as elsewhere, making the work even more valuable for dedicated gardner's in the English-speaking world. Here is an unrivaled combination of botanical information and guidance on cultivation, together with suggestions for effective landscape use. The picture is completed by the inclusion of many species technically classified as woody sub-shrubs which are nevertheless traditionally used in perennial beds or rock gardens.

In scope and magnitude, Hardy Herbaceous Perennials will take its place besides Krüssmann's manuals on trees and shrubs–together they represent an unequaled survey of the plant world viewed from the dedicated gardener's point of view.

Book News Annotation:

The first English translation, revised and expanded, of the classic German plant encyclopedia first published 40 years ago. The core of the book is an alphabetical description by genus and species of plants considered hardy in temperate climates and recognized as having garden merit, as well as some species of less aesthetic but greater botanic interest. The presentation combines botanical information, guidance on cultivation, and suggestions for effective landscape use, and includes some 1,000 photographs, about two-thirds in color.
