One of the most definitive and conclusive books written about perennials, the first edition was designated as one of the best 75 books written in the last 75 years by the American Horticulture Society, and the third is even better! The third edition of “The Big Perennial Book� (as it is fondly referred to by many practitioners) describes 3,600 species in 1224 pages. More than 300 color photos complement detailed text filled with the author’s pointed observations of plant performance, cultivar selection and current taxonomy.

This is the first comprehensive book to aid the gardener in making a start with native plants. It takes the gardener through the beginning steps of identifying native plants, evaluating them in relation to conventional garden materials, and learning detailed techniques of propagation and culture. Annuals, perennials (including ferns), bulbs, shrubs and trees are included—with about 350 species treated in detail, and many others included in charts and listings for quick reference. A few California native plants have been in cultivation for a hundred years or so, but widespread consciousness of natives is relatively recent. It has arisen partly because of the recent drought, which natives survived more readily than exotics, and partly because of growing awareness that many natives have become rare or endangered, and may be preserved and perpetuated by cultivation for their ornamental qualities. The book is in full accord with the new trend in landscaping in which the environment, climate, and restricted water supplies are taken into account—not only for gardens but also for parks, roadside plantings, and other large-scale landscaping. Because propagation and cultural methods for many native plants have never been recorded, the author spent years gathering information through correspondence. She has also had personal experience in growing natives for more than 30 years. The result is the first complete, practical, convenient guide for growing native plants. It will be essential for the experienced gardener and the beginner alike.

PREFACE: This text provides information about common and uncommon annuals, biennials, perennials, bulbs, ornamental grasses, herbs, and hardy ferns that are adapted to most climates of the United States and Canada. The fourth edition is larger than the previous edition and I expect that a future edition will be even larger. The learning process of a plantsman is a life-long endeavor and I will continue to discover new plants in my travels. The idea for this text started developing when I was a student in a herbaceous plants course at the University of Illinois. At that time, I realized that there was no one text that included identification characteristics and the ornamental and cultural features necessary to obtain a complete understanding of the subject. This idea was further reinforced when I became an instructor of herbaceous plants at Kansas State University. I found it impossible to recommend any one book for student use because each had its advantages and disadvantages. This text provides the student, the professional, and the home gardener with illustrations and concise treatment of plant information. I have had an opportunity to travel extensively in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Great Britain. Information gained in these travels has been incorporated in this expanded fourth edition. There are over 1 20 new plant descriptions and now a total of 384 color photos. Wildflowers and herbs are two examples of plant groups where coverage has been expanded. Since the printing of the third edition of the Manual of Herbaceous Ornamental Plants, I have received many helpful suggestions of how this text could be enhanced. I am indebted to those individuals who took time to contact me with their suggestions. I have assimilated their comments and incorporated them in the fourth edition. The art work for the fourth edition was done by Lynda Chandler.
