Riassunto: No matter where you live in North America, it is likely that the plants in your garden are descended from South American, Asian, Australian, or European plants imported here many years ago. The Global Migrations of Ornamental Plants: How the World Got into Your Garden traces the journey of the familiar plants we grow in our gardens from their far-flung roots to our backyards.
From the Foreword
As Taylor s narrative illustrates, horticultural exploration has been profitable, exciting, and sometimes dangerous. Often risking their lives, early plant explorers brought exotic plants into the common landscape of the modern world. ... The Global Migrations of Ornamental Plants explores first the classic history of these plant peregrinations, moving on to the history of introductions in modern horticulture. ... Introducing us to an English cottage garden in her prologue, Taylor outlines the intertwined origins of the plants from every temperate region of the world. Judith Taylor masterfully demonstrates that our gardens are indeed global in origin. Peter H. Raven and Victoria C. Hollowell
