We've taken some of the work and a lot of the worry out of your next trip to the garden center. In this book you'll find over 160 accounts featuring the best plant varieties in nine categories: annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, vines, climbers, roses, bulbs and herbs. You'll also find information about each plant's special features, its habitat, height and spread, best soil, light and water conditions, and tips about the best use of the plant in your garden. Color-coded bars at the top of each page make it fast and easy to find what you're looking for.
