A book designed especially to compare and admire the beauty of perennials. It is particularly well suited for comparing one cultivar with another. Most perennials are shown photographed in close-up floral view against a white background for an excellent comparison opportunity. Many of these same plants are also shown from a greater distance in a garden or native habitat setting. This is a book that excels at the visual image of perennials. One concise paragraph of information is included for each plant.
