The book combines practical information on the care and cultivation of these plants based on Mary’s first hand knowledge and observations on their performance. The book also includes an extensive section on design fundamentals for using perennials. Fully illustrated and clearly written this is a welcome addition to any desert gardener’s bookshelf.
