Peonies, primroses, and anemones, oh my! Gorgeous photographs accompany brief summations of many early-blooming perennials in an encyclopedic format. Each featured variety rates a small photograph, but my favorite photos gather many specimens into a full page collage.

Similar to their books on perennials this covers 1900 shrubs described and listed in floweeing order from late winter, through spring and summer to autumn. Basic text descriptions with gorgeous photos to illustrate.

Very comprehensive, but some of the photos are small and hardiness is given only in degrees Celsius. For some entries, the hardiness is vague, as is "hardy to -25C or less" or "hardy to -15C possibly."
