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.

Book News Annotation:

Lloyd, who was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's highest honor, presents an extensive and opinionated summary of a lifetime's gardening experience. Following an introduction in which he explains what perennials are and their particular advantage in the garden, he describes the plants and assesses their good and less good points. In the course of his alphabetical journey from Acanthus to Zigadenus, he touches on large and small genuses, both common and obscure, describing the height and habit of the plants, garden situations in which they have worked well for him, and any pests or diseases they are particularly susceptible to. Contains many lovely color photographs of portions of gardens.

Royal Horticultural Society Victoria Medal award-winner Christopher Lloyd tells all, including colorful, expert entries for all of his favorite perennials, bulbs, grasses, & ferns — stunning photos complete this beautiful garden reference.

Synopsis:

This represents the fruit of Lloyd's lifetime's study of perennial plants. 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, sometimes dyspeptic or even rude, and always entertaining. In his own words, "Here you have the voice of an individual rather than the omniscience of a faceless team of contributors ... I love plants: at least that must be clear--perhaps even infectious."
