Summary, etc.:
"This generously illustrated, fact-filled volume showcases more than 1,000 outstanding plants that run the gamut from childhood favorites and heirloom rediscoveries to the latest introductions and new cultivars. Plants are the backbone of a garden, and this book provides invaluable guidance in deciding what to grow next, from childhood favorites, rediscovered heirlooms, and curiosities to the latest introductions from hybridizers and plant hunters.The book is organized first by the groups in which plants are usually sold (annuals, bulbs, perennials, etc.), then by globally recognized botanical names, with common names where relevant. It includes plants useful for the smallest spaces, such as window boxes and patios, to those suitable for larger plots. There are also selections for seasonal interest, edibles, and houseplants"
