Editorial Reviews

Roberta Diehl

"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)

Chicago Botanic Garden

"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
