Visit with the Plant Guru

We just had a delightful lunch with Dr. Allan Armitage, the plant guru from the University of Georgia, who was visiting our neck of the woods for Longwood Gardens' Lilytopia exhibit. As a well- known writer, speaker, teacher and researcher, Dr. Armitage travels throughout the world to study annuals, perennials, cut flowers and greenhouse crops in various climates.

We were excited to learn more about his latest book, Armitage's Vines and Climbers: A Gardener's Guide to the Best Vertical Plants, which is definitely a must have if you're into vertical gardening. In it, he selects and profiles more than 115 of the most useful and attractive climbing plants for a wide variety of sites and conditions. So, if you're looking to create privacy from those nosy neighbors or the illusion of space in your garden, check out his book now available through Timber Press.
