For most home owners, shrubs are an essential part of the yard or garden because they provide shade, flowers, and foliage from spring through autumn. Unfortunately, the choices available at many garden centers tend to be predictable and often unsuited to the local climate and growing conditions. It doesn't have to be that way. The superior plants available today can transform average gardens into scenes of beauty and serenity.
For decades, the Gossler family has tested, propagated, and sold the very best hardy shrubs from around the world. This book is a distillation of their expertise - a guide to more than 350 of the most beautiful, versatile, and growable shrubs. Plant profiles describe the plant's main characteristics, give height and spread, and list the growing conditions needed to thrive.
Gardeners in the Pacific Northwest will get the most out of this useful work because of similar growing conditions to the Gosslers, but gardeners in zones 5-9 will also find worthy choices. -- Sue O'Brien Library Journal 20091015 Even though I grow plenty of shrubs and read voraciously, the Gosslers' book introduced me to new varieties that I want to try. -- Barbara Blossom Ashmun Portland Tribune 20091112 Reading The Gossler Guide is like walking through the display garden with one of the Gossler family. The informal style, depth of knowledge about the plants, and passion with which the information is shared ... is totally engaging. -- Barclay and Sharon Simpson Pacific Horticulture 20100101
