With their immense diversity of color, shape, size, scent, flowers and berries, shrubs provide the gardener with an inexhaustible range of plants to suit every site, whatever its aspect or soil.

The plants are arranged according to their flowering season, from winter through to autumn, and the authoritative text describes each plant's origin, important characteristics and the growing conditions that suit it.

Also included is a list of gardens open to the public and a guide to nurseries.
