A garden in winter is a sight to behold. Twisting branches once laden with leaves are now revealed in all their architectural splendor. Exfoliating bark of varied hues peels away from tree trunks like the unfurled petals of spring flowers. For those who view gardening as a fair-weather activity, Simeone eloquently extols the virtues of the garden in the fourth season of the year. Some plants are meant to shine gloriously only under the summer sun; knowing which ones like to strut their stuff when the snow flies is the trick to creating a garden of chilly delight. Aided by vibrant color photography, Simeone displays a winter wonderland of trees and shrubs, describing their seasonal attributes, discussing their landscape uses, and determining their cultural characteristics. Helpful appendixes include tips on evergreen maintenance, lists of deer-resistant plants, and the merits of greenhouse gardening. A lush and learned resource for those wanting to maximize the majesty and magic of their gardening experience. Carol Haggas
