Review

listed in booklist (Marianna Green Wfaa.Com)

[Perennial Garden Color] offers many photos and plant descriptions, plus an extensive segment on old garden roses and companion plants. Photos of formal and informal designs offer inspiration for home gardeners. (Marsha Murray Harlow Dallas Morning News)

Welsh gives all of the necessary details to ensure your [gardening] success. (Yard and Garden)

Consider this: A plant that produces beautiful flowers, survives the extremes of Texas weather to live for years (or even decades), doesn't require a lot of pampering and multiplies itself. Now wonder there's a renewed interest in perennials. (Carol Nuckols Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

If you could have only one book about perennials in the South, this is the one. It includes pertinent cultural information as well as handsome pictures for identification and inspiration. (Lois Chaplin Southern Living)

Perennial Garden Color has great photos and is especially good at relating the old fashioned plants such as antique roses and bulbs to the modern landscape... a good resource and a good read. (Dr. Calvin finch Austin American Statesman)

Perennial Garden Color is a comprehensive work on perennials, old garden roses and the the cottage gardening concept in Texas and the South. (Margaret Martin The Shreveport Times)

Dr. Welch suggests ways to use old garden ideas in today's gardens. (American Rose)

Format: Hardcover
You will enjoy the many discoveries this book has to offer and it is beautifully illustrated with a color photograph and planting recommendations for every plant. I cannot recommend a better book for a Houston or Gulf Coast gardener, either expert or new comer, and I have read them all! It focuses on plants that truly do well HERE. It skips azaleas, hybrid roses, tulips and all the other fussy plants pushed by the local nurseries do great anywhere but here. Instead it offers beautiful and underused (and for the most part - EASY) alternatives.

By Miss Birdie on March 2, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is my favorite gardening book, and the one that gave me the courage to start ripping out the grass and planting ornamentals. I've referred to it so often, the binding is now loose. Welch's vast experience with plants that can stand up to sometimes-brutal Southern conditions is invaluable. Exceedingly helpful general and specific information on a large variety of plants to brighten your landscape.

Prefer to only plant one time? Go with perennials to reduce the time spent planting and the time spent enjoying
