About this book

Originally published in 2000, Armitage's Garden Perennials quickly became a garden-shelf classic. Now it's back and better than ever in this new revised and updated second edition. Renowned horticulturist Allan M. Armitage once again features his discerning selection of more than 1250 of the best perennials, over 300 of which are new to this edition. Old favorites like phlox and rudbeckia remain, but gardeners will delight in new introductions like the popular Baptisia 'Carolina Moonlight' and Echinacea 'Tangerine Dream'. Each plant entry includes scientific and common names, hardiness zone information, tips on growth and cultivation, and Armitage's unique and beloved humour. Supported by more than 1300 colour photos, 400 of which are new, and rounded out with useful lists of plants for specific situations, this outstanding reference belongs on the shelf of every gardener.

Media reviews

"In July 2006 I reviewed a previous book by this author – Armitage's Native Plants for North American Gardens. I liked that book and I like this one even more, since it deals with plants that come from all over the world and not just North America."
- The Professional Gardener 01/01/2012

"Having a garden with space to invest in new plants, Armitage's Garden Perennials second edition is just the ticket. It is a straightforward plant reference book with clear images and solid information, which will help you plan and shop. It is a book that will move the garden on. One for the impatient gardener who would rather be digging than reading."
- Tamsin Westhorpe, The English Garden 01/11/2011

"[I] was completely charmed by this opening sentence: "I love the sedums for their amazing diversity of foliage, flower and plant habit, but there are so darn many of them, it is impossible to grow or know them all." This is a guide to perennials with attitude."
