This book has a photo of each flower. It gives the height, amount of sunlight, problems of the plant such as disease resistant or insects, spacing, when to plant, when the plant blossoms, etc. A real keeper for a novice gardener like myself.
Beautiful photos and good descriptions and tips for each plant. A must for the beginner gardener! Good to know what type of plants will grow in the Midwest.
This is one of a series of books that are very useful for growing in Minnesota - it obviously gets VERY cold here so it's perfect to have books that apply to our climate.
Just received, so haven't had a chance to "test",but at first glance it looks like what I was expecting.
