Armitage's Vines and Climbers: A Gardener's Guide to the Best Vertical Plants

Overview


Climbing plants are a largely untapped resource for today's gardeners. Because their habit of growth is primarily vertical, they can be used to provide privacy, screen eyesores, and draw the eye upward to create the illusion of space.

Overview


Climbing plants are a largely untapped resource for today's gardeners. Because their habit of growth is primarily vertical, they can be used to provide privacy, screen eyesores, and draw the eye upward to create the illusion of space.

In Armitage's Vines and Climbers, renowned horticulturist Allan Armitage selects and profiles the most useful and attractive climbing plants for a wide variety of sites and conditions. The choices include both woody and herbaceous plants, both annuals and perennials. Profiles for more than 115 plants include a general description, hardiness, plant family, best method of propagation, method of climbing, and the etymology of botanical and common names. Climbing plants add an extra dimension to gardening — literally.

By following Armitage's sage advice, gardeners and designers will be well equipped to create dazzling gardens that transcend the boundaries of horizontality.

Editorial Reviews

Philadelphia Inquirer
"Written with authority, in simple language, with humor. Anyone trying to build a gardening library should think about adding this one."
Pitsburgh Post-Gazette

"Armitage’s Vines and Climbers…is definitely a keeper. Once again, he cuts to the chase and introduces us to some new and not-so-new garden plants. As always, his prose is extremely informative."
Newsday

"Who says your garden has to be horizontal? Certainly not Allan Armitage, renowned professor of horticulture at the University of Georgia, who has turned his affable writing style on climbing plants and their underappreciated ability to provide privacy, cover unsightly vistas, and draw the eye upward."
Booklist

"Based upon his own adroit, hard-won, well-traveled personal experiences, Armitage's engaging plant portraits include practical information on propagation and etymology, backed by lists of specific characteristics and botanical names."
Patriot News

"Armitage's book offers selection help to the vine-shy and vine-challenged."

National Gardening Association Regional Reports

"What a great collection of plants [Armitage] has assembled to explain and illustrate the many kinds of vines and climbing plants that can be grown in the US, most in our regions."
Chicago Tribune

"This photo-packed printer delivers the pros and cons for 100-plus plants to help gardeners and gardens reach new heights."
Muskogee Phoenix
Whether you prefer woody vines and climbers or herbaceous (ones that die back to the ground in the winter), Armitage’s wisdom will guide you to choose the best selections for the space you want to cover.

Meet the Author


Widely regarded as one of the world's foremost horticulturists, Allan M. Armitage is a professor at the University of Georgia, Athens, where he teaches, conducts research on new garden plants, and runs the University of Georgia Horticulture Gardens. He travels widely as a lecturer and consultant, and is the recipient of numerous awards from nursery trade groups and horticultural organizations, including the Medal of Honor from the Garden Club of America and the National Educator Award from the American Horticultural Society. He is the author of nine other books, as well as six CDs and two Internet courses for gardeners. Armitage was honored with a Quill and Trowel award from the Garden Writers Association of America, and Greenhouse Grower magazine named him one of the ten most influential people or organizations — ever — in the floriculture industry for "encouraging growers to expand their markets with new annuals, cut flowers, and perennials."
