Publisher Comments:

Selecting perennial plants can be overwhelming - there are hundreds of choices, and it's difficult to know when your plants will bloom, whether they'll thrive in sunny or shady spots, and which ones will look well together. In Five-Plant Gardens, Nancy Ondra eliminates the guesswork and the stress, offering 52 garden plans that each use only five plants! These plans are simple, inexpensive, and sure to look beautiful all season long. They are grouped according to whether they grow best in sun, partial shade, or full shade, and each one includes an illustrated planting plan, a shopping list with brief plant descriptions, information on what to expect as the planting matures, and tips on customizing the plan for different sites and climates.

Synopsis:

Beautiful Perennial Gardens Have Never Been Easier


Take the guesswork out of designing and planting perennial beds with Nancy Ondra's plans for 52 gardens, each one featuring just five perennials that grow well together and combine for stunning visual effect.
