"This transcontinental tour of modern home gardens showcases a healthy dose of gardener and garden diversity across the spectrum of the American landscape. It offers lessons and inspiration and ingeniously seasons them with playfulness, passion, and purpose." --Jennifer Jewell, author of Under Western Skies and The Earth in Her Hands, host of Cultivating Place

"As an editor of a national magazine, I know how difficult it is to find gardens beautiful enough to inspire people across the country. This book does just that--letting us have a peek over the fence to discover new plants, design ideas, and the gardeners themselves." --Stephen Orr, editor in chief, Better Homes Gardens

"A garden is a personal thing, and it is about time we have a book that will inspire American gardeners to be personal about their design and plants. American Roots is well worth a place either on the coffee table or in the library of every gardener." --Sidney Frazier, vice president of horticulture, Middleton Place

"I love this book. Here are home gardens of designers from every part of our great country that are inspiring proof of a passionate vitality and freshness in American gardening today." --Page Dickey, author of Uprooted, co-founder of The Garden Conservancy Open Days
