Book about Plants

I would like to recommend a book called Passalong Plants by Steve Bender and Felder Rushing (SB 407.B43) 

Though it is an older book, it does have timeless information. 

The book talks about Passalongs: “plants that have survived in gardens for decades by being handed down from one person to another.”

There are so many of these plants which are discussed in the book.  My favorites are:

Hollyhocks
Naked Ladies (“magic lilies”)
Passion Flowers
Rose of Sharon
Thrift

The authors provide photographs of many of the plants and feature many witty comments.
