Armitage’s Garden Annuals: A Color Encyclopedia-Allan Armitage

Don't let the name throw you off. He didn't create them, he just knows a lot about them. It is one of the best guides to annuals for landscapes. Although it is not written for the South specifically, it does address many annuals that do well in the Lowcountry. It has more than 1,300 photographs making it one of the most definitive reference to annuals, biennials and half-hardy perennials. Some of the plants those Northerners grow as summer annuals are fall and winter lovers for us down south, so if it looks too good to be true, do the research and then try it. Who knows, you may be the first to successfully grow it in the south!
