In two easy-access sections, gardeners of all levels will find perfect plants for every situation-learn how to combine them for maximum impact with minimum maintenance.

• Section One: Dry soil? Lots of Shade? Excessive wind? Simply look up a particular condition and discover easy-care plants necessary to thrive

• Section Two: Wild about tulips? Passionate about roses? Pining for evergreens? Find the facts on favorite plants, including which varieties need the least amount of TLC

Seeking out a four-season trooper? Azaleas stand up to blistering winds, acidic soil, and road salt ... and still burst out in a blaze of color every spring. Facing a tough-to-plant hillside? Turn to enchanting, drought-resistant daylilies and barberries to ward off erosion while bringing a smile of sunny yellow. These pages are filled with an abundance of possibilities for gardening with ease and enjoyment.
