Returning with showy brilliance year after year, perennials continue to be the center of gardening interest both nationally and regionally. Master gardener Marty Wingate and photographer Jacqueline Koch present a gorgeous and definitive guide to the best perennials for Northwestern climates, filled with specific advice on how to select the best type and quality, as well as recommendations on which perennials work best together (similar light and water needs). Wingate's easy-to-follow instructions on caring for perennials are enhanced by Koch's lovely photos, which fill the book with vibrant color.
