Northern garden symphony : combining hardy perennials for blooms all season / Cyndie Warbelow.

Warbelow, Cyndie, (author.).


"Section I defines the terms that will assure we all have our feet on the ground in the same garden speaking the same language. Section II dives into the concept of perennial design and identifies the most important parameters to consider when choosing the players for a garden symphony. Section III introduces the concept of the Charts as a design tool to keep the garden symphony playing bright and clear all season long. Section IV walks the reader through the step-by-step design of five garden symphonies using the charts as a guide for choosing the players. Appendix A is easy to access, in-depth descriptions of all of the plants listed on the Charts. The last four appendices provide guidance on planning, planting, supplementing color and structure in a perennial garden, and maintaining perennials from season to season"-- Provided by publisher.
