Though many species are in constant danger of extinction, surprising numbers of these older variety of plants survive to this day. This book is both a guide and a tribute to those plants, providing a feast for the eye, essential reading for every nostalgic gardener plus all the information for the gardener who wants to plant correctly for "period" gardens, or "cottage" gardens.
