Powerhouse Plants: 510 Top Performers for Multi-Season Beauty Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gardeners, like everyone, are too short on time and money to waste either on plants that only look good for a few weeks. You want hardworking, eye-catching plants that provide beauty for multiple seasons.

You want powerhouse plants — plants with colorful spring flowers and summer fruits, or summer fruits and fall foliage, or summer flowers, fall foliage and winter stems … or any combination of two or more of these desirable features. Like flowering dogwood that boasts summer flowers and fall fruit and foliage. Or honeysuckle that has fragrant spring flowers, summer and fall foliage, and fall fruit.

Powerhouse Plants by Graham Rice features multiseasonal perennials, annuals, groundcovers, vines, shrubs, and trees. Profiles include basic plant information, including size, hardiness, and preferred growing conditions.

With this indispensable guide in hand, you can leave the slacker plants behind and get the most of your money and landscape.

About the Author

Graham Rice is a distinguished international garden writer and is unique in having won three awards for his writing in the USA, as well as three in the UK.

He is editor-in-chief of the American Horticultural Society's Encyclopedia of Perennials and the author of more than twenty books, and he runs the Royal Horticultural Society's New Plants blog as well as his Transatlantic Gardener blog.

He has been the gardening correspondent of Britain's Observer and Evening Standard newspapers and contributes frequently to the RHS's magazines The Garden and The Plantsman; he has also written for all the top gardening magazines on both sides of the Atlantic, including Horticulture, Garden Design, BBC Gardeners' World, and Country Life.

A widely respected plantsman, Graham trained at the prestigious Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is a member of the RHS's committee on herbaceous plants (judging their trials of both annuals and perennials), and also judges at the Chelsea Flower Show.

He divides his gardening time between Pennsylvania and England with his wife, American garden writer and photographer judywhite.
