In this remarkable book, Pamela Harper takes us on a walk through 30 years in her Virginia garden; season by season, she unsentimentally describes the plants that did not live up to expectations, as well as those that exceeded all hopes. All the trees, shrubs, and perennials included have earned the author's trust and affection for a decade or more--plants that have stood the test of time.

Includes a US plant source list, US and Eurasian hardiness zone maps, and English- metric system conversion charts. 10.25x8.25 <"> landscape format.
