Don, Thanks for those suggestions, I'm sure that will be helpful to the readers. (Why didn't I think of that?)
Here's a link to Dave's Garden Bookworm.

There one can see a list of favorite books as compiled by DG members, read reviews on many, and there is a search box (scroll down) where you can pull up a list by the topic Perennial Flowers.

Thanks for making my article more helpful!!!!!
