  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
Graham Rice presents his expert's choice of the best traditional varieties of annuals, along with the finest of modern introductions and some less familiar plants which deserve to be grown more widely. He explains what makes annuals work well together, in sun or shade, in borders, bedding schemes, and containers; and he gives comprehensive instruction on raising annuals, planting, and care. Discovering Annuals contains all the inspirational planting ideas and practical information you need to transform your garden with these alluring plants.

The bulk of the book is encyclopedia style, one or two page descriptions of many annuals and some species not well know as annuals too. Vines are included. There is a short but helpful section on growing annuals from seed and how to care for annuals. There's a table of about thirty species who have been given new botanical names. There are enough pretty pictures to tempt you too.
