Description
Hounds-Tongue. Ragged Robin. Pennyroyal. These plants, whose very names conjure up a bygone world, were among the great variety of flowers and herbs grown in America’s colonial gardens. Historical plant expert Lawrence Griffith brings this botanical heritage back to life, drawing on years of archival research and field trials in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. Griffith documents 56 species of flowers and herbs, providing details on their history in the New World, and offers cultivation tips for gardeners. Such species as the Common Milkweed, the Maltese Cross, and Love-Lies-Bleeding are featured in dozens of full-page color photographs and period illustrations.
