If you are looking for a gardening book that will give you lots of ideas on many shade loving plants-this is NOT the book for you. Aside from the list of moist soil plants, there is nothing else really useful here. Very wordy and not enough pictures or variations. And who even knows where to find these plants with a native habitat in Asia, Europe, or the Mediterranean? What a disappointment!

Excellent for a yard with absolutely no sun.
