Comprehensive and fully illustrated, this book serves as a resource for selecting, siting, planting, and maintaining perennials that flourish in northern climates.
This expanded edition identifies the fifty most popular perennial groups, offers in-depth information on wild and cultivated varieties best suited to cold climates, and rates more than 500 of the choicest plants. In addition to the plant data, it includes a concise course in perennial gardening, from preparing a site and buying potted perennials to composting, watering, mulching, fertilizing, weeding, staking, deadheading, pruning, protecting plants in winter, companion planting, and dealing with disease and insect problems.
Truly encyclopedic . . . I know of no other perennial book that gives you this much information and presents it in such an accessible format. This book is a classic.
