Garden Flowers From A to ZBook - 2007
This handy, color-illustrated volume identifies virtually all of the most desirable garden flowers and offers quick-reference information to home gardeners on each plant's growing season, its needed amount of rainfall or watering, and whether the plant thrives best in direct sunlight or in shady plots. Preceding the book's main section of photo-illustrated, single-page profiles describing approximately 200 flowers, the authors present a beautifully illustrated section that gives flower gardeners general planting and cultivating advice. A section at the back of the book provides imaginative ideas for bringing together flowers of different kinds and colors to create unusually attractive garden arrangements. Here, in a single information-packed and photo-filled handbook, is advice for planting colorful flowers that blossom in spring, summer, and autumn, with concise profiles on individual blossoms ranging from asters and gladiolas to violets and zinnias. More than 200 color photos.
