Keeping your perennial garden in bloom from March through October has never been easier. Garden designer Pam Duthie has arranged 272 of the best perennials—each with a full-color photo—in order of bloom time, giving all the information you’ll need to grow: zone, height/width, descriptions of flower and foliage, bloom time, light and soil requirements, care, propagation, and potential problems. 

Editorial Review

Library Journal - Cleverly arranged by month of blooming time, Duthie's book covers 272 perennials including traditional perennials and selected bulbs, grasses, and shrubs. Each "plant portrait" provides the scientific and common names of the plant; details of it's flower, foliage, care, uses and propagation; plants to combine it withl and problems, insider's tips, and a good color photograph or the perennial.

Allan Armitage - Pam has written a terrific book that is concise and to the point. Not only has she simplified bloom times for gardeners, but her excellent plant descriptioons also help us understand how the plants will perform.

Chicago Tribune - A most helpful book…an instant problem solver for the gardener passing through a drab period. Duthie's book is a gardener's dream.
