When I saw this book, my first impression was that the topic might be too narrow.

Incorrect.

Excellent book packed with color photos and descriptions of garden gems.

I am embarrassed by how few of these treasures I have in my own garden.

Many of them are not hardy here.

And of those that are hardy here, most are not sold by local vendors.

It encourages me to redouble my efforts to seek out valuable additions to the garden.

This book is good for photographers, gardeners, and poets. Every flower is well-photographed; he picture of "bird flower" is particularly arresting. The names of these flowers read like poetry: chocolate soldiers, love-lies-bleeding, kangaroo paw ,Texas bluebell, silk tassel bush, teasel,rose plantain, herb Paris, and rose plantain. I am left with a singular desire to smell green lavender and the green China rose.
