Herbaceous perennials flower each year, dying down in the winter and coming back to life the following spring. They are central features in the landscape of a garden as they appear year-after-year and must be regarded as constant features. This book gives the expert view on the vast array of flowers available. It includes creative ideas and border planting plans; practical advice on care, maintenance, and propagation; illustrated A-to-Z profiles of recommended plants; recommended plants for specific purposes, conditions, and effects; and step-by-step illustrations showing essential techniques.
