Flowering shrubs, such as the iconic hydrangea and the treasured azalea, are a cornerstone in every garden, and professional designers and experienced gardeners grapple with which to choose when planting. Jim Gardiner makes this decision easier with his rigorous plant selection in "The Timber Press Encyclopedia of Flowering Shrubs."
The plant selection includes flowering shrubs that grow particularly well in the world's temperate zones. While most of the plants thrive without much extra care, there are some more demanding choices will reward the experienced gardener. The introductory section provides valuable horticultural advice on how to give the plants the best possible start and ongoing care so that they flourish in the longer term.
This highly illustrated guide features 1500 plants in more than 345 genera organized alphabetically by botanical name and readily accessed using the common name index. Gardiner has chosen the best flowering shrubs for gardeners, from the "Abelia, Buddleja," and "Camellia" to the "Xanthoceras, Yucca," and "Zanthoxylum." Essential horticultural notes accompany each entry and include expected height and spread after 10 years, season of flowering, preferred position, soil and pruning requirements, and USDA hardiness zone rating.
