In this fascinating memoir, Peter Orum discusses the myriad of people who've influenced him and those whose lives he's touched; the plants that have formed the very foundation of his career in horticulture; and the politics that have inspired him to work for the legislative reforms he so strongly believes in.  

It is he chronicle of a young Dane who grew up in a small family nursery, apprenticed at other nurseries, studied horticulture at a premier vocational school, served in the Danish Army, came to the U.S. to gain additional nursery experienceand stayed to establish one of the leading horticultural businesses in the U.S.

His roots on both continents grow deep and wide: He holds dual citizenship in the U.S. and Denmark and maintains homes and thriving businesses in each country. His tireless work for national and international professional associations, as well as heritage and language societies, have served untold beneficiaries, and have enriched the story of his life.
