I love sedums and while I have books about cacti and succulents, a book devoted to sedum will be a wonderful addition to garden libraries everywhere.
Timber Press will release the book in a few weeks so I haven't seen it yet. Here's their publicity blurb though - The Plant Lover's Guide to Sedums includes everything you need to know about these beautiful gems. Plant profiles highlight 150 of the best varieties to grow, with information on zones, plant size, soil and light needs, origin, and how they are used in the landscape. Additional information includes designing with sedums, growing and propagating them, where to buy them, and where to see them in public gardens.

Hovarth's company, Intrinsic Perennial Gardens, Inc. IL was started by his dad who came to the US in 1959 - he was originally from Hungary (my kind of people for sure) and went into the plant business after learning many other professions. Click over to their website to read his all-American story.
Their plant introductions are what we need in our weather: Plants that can take cold winters and hot, humid, summers. The site has a list of dozens of their introductions.
The book can be pre-ordered at Timber Press and at booksellers.
