The first in the most comprehensive gardening series to get a completely new look! A lot has changed since the original publication of Taylor's Guide to Annuals in 1986. What was once a rather humdrum category of horticulture has turned into one of the most popular. The Wall Street Journal called 1998 "the year of the annual, " and even the sophisticated White Flower Farm -- at first apologetically and now proudly -- features annuals. Taylor's Guide to Annuals, Biennials, and Tender Perennials is a response to the enthusiastic demand for a brand-new, up-to-date book on annuals.Many new trends have stirred excitement over annual plants, including the increasing popularity of container gardening, for which these plants are particularly suited, and the hottest new trend in landscaping -- creating a bold, even jungly look through the use of tropical plants and other dramatic specimens. To meet the demand, growers have developed hundreds of new plants and improved cultivars of old favorites. This comprehensive guide includes more than five hundred of the latest, most fashionable plants and the best cultivars of the beloved old standbys.Taylor, Norman is the author of 'Taylor's Guide to Annuals' with ISBN 9780395404478 and ISBN 0395404479.
