Viki Ferreniea, one of America's foremost wildflower experts, begins this invaluable gardening guide by presenting ten stunning garden designs to suit a variety of habitats and levels of gardening expertise. Her carefully chosen gardens include spring woodlands, a fern garden, waterside and meadow gardens, a treasure-filled rock garden, as well as perennial borders for both sun and shade. These gardens - with the exception of the highly specialized bog garden - can be adapted to grow well in most North American climates by the selection of appropriate plant material. Each design is accompanied by a detailed planting diagram and illustrated with an exquisite watercolor painting of the garden at its height.
In addition to these glorious garden designs, Ferreniea has included an indispensable mini-encyclopedia of the best wildflowers to grow in your garden, along with companion plants such as ferns, shrubs, and small trees. This section is illustrated with more than one hundred color photographs, which enhance its use as both an identification and a growing guide.
The final section of Wildflowers in Your Garden is a detailed, nitty-gritty guide filled with all the practical information and recommendations needed to create, plant and grow each type of garden described in the book.
Uniquely comprehensive and authoritative, beautifully and richly illustrated with 170 color photographs, 40 paintings and plans, and 50 black and white line drawings, Wildflowers in Your Garden will be the definitive resource on wildflowers for years to come.
