Perennials are the cornerstones of most mature gardens, providing yearly seasonal color. This book will help you choose perennials (by color, sun/shade requirements, height, bloom time, etc.) and plant them in the most agreeable conditions available in your garden. A chapter on designing with perennials will show you how to give shape to your garden and add the color and texture of many combinations of plants.
Although the emphasis is on less-effort/ more-enjoyment perennials, a section on caring for your plants includes information about thinning and pinching shoots to enhance blooming, dividing perennials for propagation, and deadheading.
