Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Keeping your perennial garden in bloom from March through October and beyond has never been easier. Garden designer Pam Duthie has arranged 272 of the best perennials — each with a full-color photo — in order of bloom time, giving all the information you'll need to grow: zone, height/width, descriptions of flower and foliage, bloom time, light and soil requirements, care, propagation, and potential problems. Pam even recommends uses for each plant and offers insider's tips.

Book News Annotation:

Essentially a photo gallery of 272 perennials that Duthie uses at her northern Illinois-based landscape design and consulting firm. Arranged by bloom time, each one-page entry includes a 3.5x5<"> photo and a short list of attributes—including plant type (e.g., herb, native, bulb, fern); USDA zone; flower and foliage; bloom length; height and spacing; light and soil needs; special care requirements; uses; propagation methods and timing; and pest and disease problems. Duthie also includes insider tips, suggestions for unique combinations of perennials, and several appendices with additional advice on maintenance and selection.
