- Great ideas Review by Cheryl
This has been my go-to book for creating little ensembles in my garden. Photography is beautiful, as always, and many of the combinations are unusual and contain not only plants that grow in the same conditions, but plants with contrasting textures as well as colors.

- Great for homes with shade and lawns of grass. Review by Sharon
I really did enjoy this book. I realized how much I missed my gardens and the growing season in the Southeast (FL).
I currently have a home in the Southwest with no green 'lawn', no trees...all desert and open. Basically a clean slate. I have several Ocatillo, a variety of Yuccas, a variety of Cactus and Ironwood, etc.
I do have one spot that I save for butterflies and hummingbirds. The section on Sea Hollies and additional drought tolerant flowering plants was very nice to see.
Thank you for such a great Magazine and Website.

- This book gives you a great visual of your garden. Review by john
It's a great book to understanding what your garden will be once it is grown out. During the off season it is difficult to visualize the garden flowered out and how your garden will be come in spring. This book does that for you.
The book gives you climate zones for each plant. I considered this book small considering it needs to cover many climate zones of the United States. I live in the West and about 1/3 of the book was directly applicable to my area. Considering the amount of knowledge versus the cost you can't go wrong buying it.
