A tour of a beloved botanic treasure that’s “brimming with ideas for every home garden”—includes photos (The New York Times). For gardeners, inspiration can come from the most unexpected places. Perennial enthusiasts around the world might be surprised to find their muse in the middle of a bustling city. Lurie Garden, a nearly three-acre botanic garden in the center of Chicago’s lakefront in Millennium Park, is a veritable living lab of prairie perennials, with a rich array of plant life that both fascinates and educates as it grows, flowers, and dies back throughout the year. Thousands of visitors pass through—and many leave wondering how they might bring some of the magic of Lurie to their own home gardens. In Gardening with Perennials, horticulturalist Noel Kingsbury brings a global perspective to the Lurie oasis through a wonderful introduction to the world of perennial gardening. He shows how perennials have much to offer home gardeners, from sustainability—perennials require less water than their annual counterparts—to continuity, as perennials’ longevity makes them a dependable staple. Kingsbury also explains why Lurie is a perfect case study for gardeners of all locales. The plants represented in this urban oasis were chosen specifically for reliability and longevity. The majority will thrive on a wide range of soils and across a wide climatic range. These plants also can thrive with minimal irrigation, and without fertilizers or chemical control of pests and diseases. With a special emphasis on plants that flourish in sun, and featuring many species native to the Midwest region, Gardening with Perennials will inspire gardeners around the world to try Chicago-style sustainable gardening.

This vintage book contains a fantastic guide to gardening, concentrating on planting and propagating perennials. A Perennial is a plant that lives for longer than two years and grows to boom over the spring and summer, dies every autumn and winter, and then returns in the spring from its rootstock. This term is usually often used to separate these types of plants from shorter-lived annuals and biennials, as well as to distinguish those that have little or no woody growth from trees and shrubs. This volume is highly recommended for those with a practical interest in growing these types of plants, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature.
