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 promises to be 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 colour photos complement detailed text filled with the author’s pointed observations of plant performance, cultivar selection and current taxonomy.
