“Behind Newcomb’s scholarly references is a genuine love of subject.” The Garden Club of America

Using the evidence of written documents, seed and plant lists, cataloges, and illustrations, the author attempts to show which annuals were popular and how they were used in the fifty-year period following the Civil War. Several commercial seed lists are reproduced to document the changing styles of gardening.
