Format: Paperback
I borrowed this book from the library, and did not get to look through it extensively, but I am a beginning gardener and would definitely like to add this book to my home library to have on hand as a reference. I liked the fact that the book is broken into sections by annuals, perrenials, shrubs, etc. Also, I think every plant mentioned includes a full color picture. That was a high point for me as I am just becoming familiar with many of these specimens. I wish I could give a more thorough review, but at first glance I was very happy with the content of this book.

As a transplanted Coloradoan coming from an arid climate to a much more moist environment, I found this book to be a good overview of plants, flowers, trees and shrubs that will do well in the various climate zones of Michigan. Still, I longed for much more information than provided by this book. I'll have to rely a lot on local nurseries for additional information.

This is a great book to have as a gardener/landscaper. excellent details, good selection and good pictures. I would've liked maybe even some more plants and some more detailed pictures for this to be a 5 star.
