Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In this irresistible book Carol Klein celebrates her favourite plants. Setting aside more conventional ways of classification, she urges the gardener to choose what they grow according to plant personalities, asserting that personality traits are as valuable as height, habit and flower colour when planning your planting. For example, good-natured 'bread-and-butter' plants contribute to the overall beauty of a garden for months,whereas 'shooting stars' offer a brief but breathtaking performance. 'Touchy-feely' plantsadd rich sensuality in contrast to the dash of frivolity provided by 'wafty whisperers'.Illustrated with superb photographs by Jonathan Buckley, Carol Klein's Favourite Plants will inspire both new and experienced gardeners to see magic in every plant. The result will be a garden of subtlety and richness.
