This versatile volume presents a wealth of information and ideas in an easy-to-use format. A perfect resource for garden planning, the plants are organized by soil type and planting condition, with entries for three plants per page in a felicitous format of color photo beside the entry, which conveys in a clear but economical way a description and list of companion plants, and lists the plant's soil preference, aspect, season of interest, and height and spread. Shrubs, annuals, perennials, trees, bulbs, grasses, plants for dry soil, wet soil, bad soil, exposed sites, etc. are among the categories. Double-page "focus on..." sections devoted to a particular plant are included throughout. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
