Harper, a highly respected garden writer whose books are mostly out of print, surveys the plants that thrive in her Virginia garden. In sections on spring, summer, autumn, and winter, she profiles notable plants in categories such as bulbs, vines, grasses and ferns, autumn flowers, berries, and more. She is opinionated in her preferences (nix to buddleia, yes to chartreuse leaves) but informed and discriminating as only a reigning garden expert can be. She abounds with tips and eye-opening ideas, such as training an unruly honeysuckle to be a front-of-the-border small shrub. She also isn't afraid to admit when a certain plant just won't do for her. This book will have most relevance in the Mid-Atlantic region, but a work by a gardener of Harper's stature belongs in sizeable horticultural collections everywhere.DBeth Clewis Crim, Prince William P.L., VA
