Discover the Pleasure of Gardening with a Master

This edition is fully revised and updated as of 2020.

Profiling over 1250 perennials, master horticulturist Allan Armitage enlightens the serious landscaper as well as the curious amateur in his easy-to-read, often humorous gardening classic, Garden Perennials. Recently revised and with over 1300 photographs by the author illustrating the details of each plant accompany authoritative growing tips and information.

Here in one place is everything you will need to know to maintain a well-tended perennial garden. This thorough, user-friendly volume covers such classics as Phlox and Rudbeckia, including several new Arisaemas, Echinaceas, Heucheras, and Podophyllums, extensively describing each plant.

Recipient of the American Horticultural Society's National Educator Award, Dr. Armitage travels and lectures widely, and is on the faculty of the University of Georgia, where he teaches and conducts extensive research, evaluating new offerings from flower breeders around the world. He has studied garden plants throughout Canada and the United States, gaining a broad perspective on the growing conditions throughout North America.

In Armitage's own words, "This is gardening, not brain surgery. Gardening should always provide far more pleasure than pain." Like a good friend, he is not bashful about sharing personal opinions regarding which plants he prefers and which fail to pique his interest. His perfect blend of technical expertise and warm friendly delivery have earned this pictorial guide to perennials a prominent spot on the bookshelves of serious gardeners for decades.
