About this book

Harper takes a journey through 30 years of gardening in good conditions and bad; season by season, she unsentimentally describes the plants that did not live up to expectations, as well as those that exceeded all hopes. Focuses mainly on those trees, shrubs, and perennials that have earned her trust and affection for a decade or more.

A digressive survey of plants worth growing, written by someone worth paying attention to. - The New York Times Book Review"
