At last a book that gives the answers. The book traces the background of over 100 famous cultivars. The book describe plants, how they came about, and the many talented people they commemorate. How did a French dressmaker's obstinacy bring her immortality? What well-known plant do we owe to a pulled train communication cord? Why should the Bishop of Llandaff be a scarlet dahlia? And who was Dorothy Perkins? This book tells the stories behind the plants, describing them and the many people who live on as plants in our gardens.
