Clearly the author has expertise
There's a tendency towards medium to longish paragraphs of very well written description, as opposed to clear, professional photographs of beds with a species inventory or supplemental text.
There are some photos, but in the digital version at least, they are slightly blurry and modestly sized to a fault, with alot of whitespace.
Good information throughout, but the organization of the material isn't optimal from an instructional or how-to standpoint.
Returned to bump this to four stars, as I continue to use and appreciate it. It doesn't get five for me because I still think it mis-titled.
It is an excellent book and I would recommend it highly.
Forty years ago, in Boulder, CO (elevation 6,000 feet), I created a wonderful garden on the south facing outside wall of a long white brick office. For 10 years something bloomed in that garden every month of the year! Often it was only early December or late January but something bloomed--even when there was 2 feet of snow nearby.
This book gets into the trials and tribulations of Rocky Mountain Gardening and the pictures are also wonderful. Wonderful book.
