A beautiful book that is informative and easy to read. I really enjoyed the author's descriptions of the individual cultivars, which include information on which ones look best in acidic or alkaline soil, which ones are vulnerable to frost, and which are the author's favorites. The fabulous photos will give you plenty of material for garden dreaming.
