Plants Of Colonial Days

by Raymond L. Taylor

In addition to household belongings, tools, and clothing, the first settlers in the American colonies also brought with them seeds, bulbs, and cuttings of their favorite plants. These, along with native flora and botanical specimens imported later from other parts of the world, comprised the decorative plants grown in colonial gardens.

Meticulously researched and painstakingly prepared, Plants of Colonial Days will delight gardeners, horticulturists, flower lovers, and anyone interested in the botanical lore of the early American colonies.
