Perennials for the Lower Midwest Reviews
Lovely book for this region of the country. I learned a lot!!
This book is a great start for any Midwestern gardener.
this book was very nice
The format of this good looking book is very useful: each plant on a page, with a facing page picture. Haggard isn't trying to be exhaustive, but point out the 100 of so perennials he has found work best in the Lower Midwest. As such, its very useful, and has been a major resource for my garden. Each page is well written so it doesn't feel like a boring reference work. He still manages to get the information on sun, soil and water needs for every plant. It's a bit dated now, there are newer varieties that might work better. But still, for a beginning gardener, this is the place to start. One note, this book doesn't contain roses or shrubs, but his newest book tackles them.
