I like my plants labelled. My neighbour doesn't. The labels disappear. I needed an identification book for my Hostas. This book gives photographs of many but not all of them together with sizes and flower descriptions. Also descriptions of care and garden structure and other plants that go well with Hostas are given. Its a good book.

Pleasurable reading 23 July 2005
By R. Beasley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It was a pleasure to read this book and worthwhile. However I am a person looking for more of a book that doesn't put it all on the line. She states in the book on pg. 27 that she does not like to write about pest and diseases however she does imparts some useful information for the novice hosta grower, but not nearly enough for an enthusiast. This is a good little book for the half hearted gardener. This is certainly not a book to hold as any type of real reference material.

Hostas inspires 16 Sept. 2004
By Christopher Sanderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
'Hostas' by Rosemary Barrett is well written, thoroughly researched and a pleasure to read. The photographs are first-rate and will inspire anyone who is landscaping in the shade. The reference sections of the book seems very thorough - although I am no expert! This is a book that can truly be judged by its cover: well designed, well-produced and beautifully presented.

Hosta's in your garden 10 July 2006
By Brenda Chauvin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Excelent book for the average gardener. This book concentrates on using Hosta's in the garden with other plants. Gives lots of suggestions in choosing color and texture to add interest and accent other plants as well as showing hosta's to their fullest potential. Also covers how hosta's grow, dividing, planting and hosta care disease and prevention. Wonderful color photo's.

By Zan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Many years after planting hostas and adding to the gardens yearly, we found ourselves asking "Which is that one?"and "Which is this one?" Thanks to "Hostas" we have found the answers to those questions. Now our hostas are properly tagged!
