  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
Several concurrent trends have created the need for a new book on annual plants. One is the increasing popularity of container gardening, for which these plants are particularly suited. Another is the hottest trend in landscaping -- creating a bold, even jungly look through the use of tropical plants and other dramatic specimens, most grown as annuals in temperate zones. To meet the demand, growers have developed hundreds of new plants and improved cultivars of old favorites. In this Taylor's Guide, buyers will find more than five hundred of the latest, trendiest plants and the best cultivars of the beloved old standbys.

Among my first garden book purchases, my 1986 edition of this book came in very handy as a new gardener (with a new garden), I initially relied a lot on annuals (easy and fast to grow) before I could fill in the bare spots with shrubs and perennials.) Now - nearly 20 years later - I still rely on many annuals for quick bursts of color, and to help fill in the bare spots when the perennials aren't blooming. Good book to have!
