Describes flowers, ferns, grasses, and other plants that grow well in the cold winters and hot summers of the region

Blackwell North Amer
In this book Lexington garden designer Ezra Haggard presents 101 of his favorite perennials for the challenging Lower Midwest. Some of these can be grown just about anywhere; others should play a more specialized role, such as in problem areas. Some will be familiar; others may come as a surprise. Selecting from among these plants, the gardener can create a base for a new garden or expand an existing one.
Haggard's photographs illustrate real gardens, not unattainable dreams. His text is full of practical advice on what to put where for high interest and low maintenance. Both text and photographs are rich in ideas for creating easy and effective plant combinations and color schemes by using the featured plants with annuals, other perennials, shrubs, and trees.
