I found this book at my local library and now plan to purchase it! I'm currently landscaping my second home that's 90% covered in shade, and need a reference that tells me which plants will work *for me*. Since her book covers shade and zones 5-8, this book is the "sweet spot" for my needs, and with hundreds of plants I'm able to choose those that best suit me without eliminating half the book off-hand because they won't grow in my zone (which happens with too many other books I've looked at). This book doesn't have many pictures--just line drawings and a small color section in the middle--so it's not a good inspiration book, but when you get down to the details of selecting individual plants for a landscape plan, it's a lifesend.
So glad to have this handy reference. We have so much shade! This book has so many helpful hints about the plants we already have as well as what we might purchase next year! I have a difficult time putting it down.
so I bought it,,, library copy, little dinged up, but the information inside is quite useable... Carolyn writes like she's your over-the -fence neighbor with the garden you yearn for.
