Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Christopher Lloyd knows perennials as well as anyone else alive. Now available in paperback, this book represents the fruit of Lloyd's lifetime study of perennials. Genus by genus, he sets down everything he has learned, thought, seen, tried, liked, or regretted about them, individually or in combination. He is formidably knowledgeable, iconoclastic, opinionated, and always entertaining. Here, meticulously recorded, are his expert opinions about numerous varieties of flowering garden plants, from Acanthus to Zigadenus, accompanied by spectacular photographs from Jonathan Buckley and others. Any gardener will find themselves opening this book time and again with pleasure and the frequent thought, "I MUST grow this one, too."

Synopsis:

Christopher Lloyd shares a lifetime of experience growing and studying perennials. In an A-Z encyclopedia of plants, we learn about flower and foliage, scent and color, size and shape, soil and cultivation; in effect, everything one needs to know to become an expert gardener.
