Editorial Reviews

Raleigh News and Observer
Lois Trigg Chaplin compiles more than 200 lists of plants that fill everyday and special needs.
Augusta Chronicle
An excellent reference for homeowners or gardeners planning a yard.
Fairhope Courier
A book that no Southern Gardener should be without.
— Joanne Caglione
New South Gardener
LoisTrigg Chaplin takes the practical, informative art of list-making to gardeners with this book...the true genius of Chaplin's work is that she also includes lists that are uncommon to find anywhere else, but are nonetheless essential bits of information. From ferns to trees to groundcovers, this book has it all nicely broken down in practical lists for everyone.
Booklist
Chaplin's recommendations for trees, perennials, azaleas, roses, and other plants are aimed at gardeners who live in the country's southern regions, including those living the farthest south, who find it most difficult to gather dependable data.
Gainesville Times
...a must book for newcomers to the South.
Fairhope Courier - Joanne Caglione
A book that no Southern Gardener should be without.
Fairhope Courier - Anne Clay
Provides a handy list of plants suitable for all types of gardening situations.
Library Journal
The author, a well-known gardening writer who served as gardening editor for Southern Living for 13 years, has compiled a useful and entertaining book of lists for Southern gardeners. It's helpful when catalogs group together plants that do well in sun or shade and code other horticultural characteristics, but Chaplin goes further, offering lists of annuals that withstand heavy rain, roses that provide fragrance, perennials suited to heavy clay soil, and, this reviewer's favorite, vines feared for their vigor. Noted experts have assisted in compiling the lists. Altogether, there are more than 200 lists in nine categories, with appropriateness for upper South, middle South, lower South, and coastal areas indicated. Recommended for public libraries in the South. (Index not seen.)-Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg
