Dumbarton Oaks Other Titles in Garden History
Popular Annuals of Eastern North America, 1865–1914
Peggy Cornett Newcomb

Using the evidence of written documents, seed and plant lists, catalogues, 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.
