Product description


"Concise care and habit information is augmented by captivating color photographs by judywhite that showcase these hardworking, must-have garden standouts." --Booklist

"The author does an excellent job. . . . overall, this is a handy A-to-Z overview of a variety plants from grasses to trees." --Library Journal

"Hundreds of photographs illustrate his ideas but also encourage readers to look a little closer at every plant in their garden and insist that each one earn its place." --Better Homes and Gardens

"Promises to be an abiding reference for year-round gardeners." --Garden Design

"Offers a mind-boggling number of suggestions. . . . It's about making the most of the space in your garden. And that's always a good idea." --Philadelphia Inquirer

"Learn about. . . . how to choose hardworking plants that provide garden interest, in some cases, from spring through winter." --The Virginian-Pilot

"Readers will be delighted that the author's suggestions are confined to ones that are easy to grow, hardy, and glorious performers. Nothing makes a gardener happier than to discover that a beautiful plant is also a workhorse and that it requires little attention." --Garden Guru

"There's no need to settle for a garden that looks great in spring or summer but makes you want to yawn during the rest of the year. Add some powerhouse plants, and you'll be on your way to a garden that delights you in every season." --North Dallas Gazette

From the Back Cover

We homeowners want to spend our hard-earned money on plants that look good for more than a few weeks--or only a few days--of the year. Even favorite plants can lose their charm if they look the same in every season. The best value comes from hardworking plants that truly earn their keep--with eye-catching looks that transform themselves over two, three, or even four seasons, giving you multiple plants in one. Of course, these treasures also should be easy, hardy, and glorious performers.

A "powerhouse plant" is one that changes beautifully and dramatically over the seasons, with colorful spring flowers, summer fruits, and fall foliage. . . or with summer flowers, fall foliage, and winter stem color--or some other combination of wonderful features and completely different looks. This book profiles outstanding multi-season plants from Abelia to Weigela, including perennials, annuals, groundcovers, vines, shrubs, and trees. By combining them in your yard, you can have a landscape that never looks boring or tired.

Powerhouse Plants is the indispensable guide to making sure you get the most out of your landscape--and leave the "slacker" plants at the nursery.
