Media reviews

"Enthusiastically recommended for both academic and public libraries and is an essential purchase for libraries where there is an interest in gardening."
Booklist

"One thing about Essential Perennials is that it's essential – maybe even mandatory – for every designer to have a copy."
Garden Design Online

"A beautifully illustrated 'spam filter' for perennial-growers."
Library Journal

"A valuable reference book that deserves a spot on your garden bookshelf."
Country Gardens

"Useful and well written. [...] Will point you in the right direction – toward a home garden that brings years of pleasure."
Garden Rant

"A welcome addition to my bookshelf and it should be for yours too. Its wide-ranging and inclusive listing gives equal time to native woodlanders, ephemerals, exotic introductions, as well as time-honored favorites and takes the confusion out of the ever-growing world of perennials."
Ottawa Citizen
