Overview

Take the guesswork out of planning your beds and borders with this unique visual directory. Over 1000 plants have been carefully grouped into eight principal colors for easy reference. They have been further divided by height so that plants may be selected for the front, middle, or back of the bed. Complete information for each plant includes a description, Latin and common names, blooming periods, hardiness, plus soil and sunlight requirements. As an extra bonus, each variety is shown in full-color photography both from a distance to allow for a view of the entire spread of the plant, and at close range to zero in on the flower leaf characteristics. All in all, guidance is provided for everything from designing an entire bed to filling in difficult gaps and spaces for a beautiful and well-planned flower garden.
