The Garden Conservancy is celebrating its 25th anniversary with this beautifully illustrated book that documents a selection of the outstanding public and private gardens it has worked with since its founding in 1989. The book showcases eight gardens the conservancy has helped preserve and 43 of the more than 3,000 private gardens across the country that have been opened to the public through its Open Days Program. The private gardens cover a wide variety of regions, habitats, designs, and plants, from early spring through autumn. Featured private gardens include Panayoti Kelaidis’s rock garden in Denver, Colorado; Deborah Whigham and Gary Ratway’s collection of native and Mediterranean plants and earth walls in Albion, California; and James David’s imaginative mix of heat-tolerant plants, rills, and pools in Austin, Texas.

Hardy herbaceous perennials make up a major part of our gardens in the world. For mostly political reasons, there is no formal process for cataloging or registering new varieties or cultivars of these important plants which sell in the billions per year. In 2013, the Open Registration Of Cultivars (OROC) aka "Oh-rock" program was created to provide a worldwide guide to new hardy herbaceous plants. This Fall 2018 edition provides 77 pages of plant descriptions, images, and links to buy to study the new plants in the public interest. It is 100% free.
