Though a slim text, this is an excellent resource to take to the garden center when choosing plants. The information is concise. The photographs are beautiful and truly representative of the plants. The author also indicates which plants attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and moths. It is the all in one resource I’ve been seeking for years. There are also helpful planting tips for making your garden as attractive to pollinators as possible.
