A friend loaned me this book recently. The layout is extremely helpful for quick reference and useful information. I look forward to taking it with me when I go to the garden center. The book is organized alphabetically, readily showing the most important information including hardiness zones, sun requirements and a synopsis of the plant's habit. In addition, there is a photo reference with clear and distinct photos of the plants described. I own quite a few garden books, but this is the one I will be taking with me when I go to buy plants, and the one I will use when browsing catalogues.
My wife wanted a book that showed different plants to grow in different parts of our yard, moist shade and very hot and dry soil. This book showed her everything she needs. She takes it when she goes to buy flowers. It is her "Yard Bible".
This book is one of my most used garden reference books. I checked out the original book from the public library before I purchased this one. I find this book has very usefull information for my Missouri gardens. Some other books have information about plants and gardens that cover too much of a geographical area. I like that this book is about Missouri plants.
This is a GREAT book and guide for Missouri flower girls!!!!!!!!!!! So happy I ordered this! I refer to it every weekend!
