About this book

This beautifully illustrated book on landscape gardening addresses shrubs and how to determine which you should plant among your perennials and where. Shrubs provide the foundation for a pleasing, yet low-maintenance garden. They are long-lived, have the ornamental appeal of perennials, and provide variety in colour, size, shape, and texture, as well as shelter and berries for birds. Shrubs can make attractive arrangements indoors and provide seasonal variation through the entire year. Gillian Harris's illustrations are botanically correct works of art that make this book absolutely irresistible.

Media reviews

"Because shrubs are so trouble free, people tend not to give them the respect they deserve. Andrews's horticultural experience is so vast she can speak to all of us, whether advanced gardeners or beginners. This book is a wonderful companion to Perennials Short and Tall and as always, Harris's charming and accurate paintings will help us to look at their subjects in a new light."
– Roberta Diehl, member INPAWS (Indiana Native Plant & Wildflower Society)

"This book is a little gem for any Midwest gardener looking for shrubs to 'become a major part of the fabric not only of our gardens, but of our lives.' Andrews, master gardener, author, and dean of the faculties emerita at Indiana University, will help you achieve this."
– Chicago Botanic Garden
