10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By J. Cottell on April 8, 2005
Format: Paperback
The very best book I've seen on perennials for our area! Nice size book, not too big, but covers the most important info well. Good photos of varities, most labelled. Great additional charts that I've been looking for: Perinnials for Clay Soil, Perennials for Exposed Locations, Perinnials for Planters... There is also a complete chapter on Propagating Perennials with charts on which to plant best from seed, or basal cuttings, or root cuttings. Back of book has Gardens to Visit, very good quick reference chart, and index.

I hope to purchase the companion books for Annuals, and Shrubs and Trees, soon.

Format: Paperback
One of the things I like best about this book is that for every perennial listed, it shows at least 3 different photographs so you can see exactly what the plant looks like. So often in seed/plant catalogues you only see a close-up of the blooms and have no idea what the rest of the plant will look like.

I'm still in my first year of gardening, and found this book to be an exhaustive, easy-to-read resource both informative and fun to page through.

Format: Paperback
I have referred to this book frequently this summer to identify current plants and to plan for future purchases of perennials. The photos are beautiful and plants are easy to find - typically two pages per perennial. Different varieties of the same plant are also discussed, as well as growing tips, height, pests, and Latin and common names. It's a handy size and has a reinforced paperback cover.

The first time I came across "Perennials for Ohio" was at the local branch of the Columbus Ohio library system shortly after relocating to the area. Finding this garden guide easy to use and extremely helpful, I decided to purchase two copies of the book, one for myself and one for a friend.

Anything Deb Knapke writes is excellent & has what is needed: a picture, recommended variants, planting help and possible problem pests.
