Overview
"Climbing plants are hugely underrated--this book with its lively expression of deep knowledge should encourage everyone to grow more of them." --Noel Kingsbury

Climbing plants constitute a huge, and largely untapped, resource for today's gardeners. Because their habit of growth is primarily vertical, they can be used for utilitarian as well as ornamental purposes like providing privacy, or screening eyesores.

In this comprehensive reference, renowned horticulturist Allan Armitage selects and profiles the most useful and attractive climbing plants for a wide range of sites and conditions, from well-known favourites like clematis, morning glories, and wisteria to more unusual plants like Dutchman's pipe, passion flowers, and the tropical mandevillas. Each profile includes a general description (enlivened by Armitage's trademark wry humour) along with the plant's hardiness, plant family, best method of propagation, method of climbing, and etymology of botanical and common names."Climbing plants are hugely underrated--this book with its lively expression of deep knowledge should encourage everyone to grow more of them." --Noel Kingsbury
