Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Finally: a book that addresses the unique challenges of gardening in the coastal South!

Master Gardener Barbara Sullivan provides an authoritative guide for gardeners from Tidewater Virginia to Florida and all along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas, an area taking in USDA Zones 7b, 8, 9, and 10. Combining helpful gardening advice with an A-to-Z plant guide that describes more than 1,000 plant varieties and cultivars, Garden Perennials for the Coastal South will become an essential reference for both experienced and novice gardeners in this region.

The book is organized to allow the reader to plan a year-round garden or to focus on a particular season, with sections on subtropical plants, vines, herbs, groundcovers, ferns, heat- and drought-tolerant plants, shade plants, bulbs, ornamental grasses, and annuals, as well as a list of disease-resistant roses for the region.

More than 200 color photographs illustrate both individual plants and examples of beautiful landscape design. Rounding out the book's usefulness is information on the basics of landscaping, soil preparation, plant care, propagation, diseases, and pests. Whether you are new to the coastal South or a lifelong resident, you will find Garden Perennials for the Coastal South an indispensable addition to your gardening bookshelf.

Synopsis:

In the first book of its kind to deal solely with the unique challenges and opportunities for growing perennials and other plants in the coastal South, Sullivan, a certified master gardener, combines expert advice with a comprehensive A-to-Z plant guide.
