"The past 10 years have seen an explosion of new hydrangea cultivars introduced into the American marketplace." This book gets readers up to date with the hydrangeas currently available from their local garden centers, and is loaded with unique growing tips. From the author of "Hydrangeas in the North: Getting Blooms in the Colder Climates," "Today's Hydrangeas" is a resource for gardeners in all climates. Over 200 full color photographs and diagrams, with descriptions of over 130 of today's hottest hydrangea cultivars. "The purpose of this book is not to supplant (pun intended) 'Hydrangeas in the North', nor any other of the wonderful hydrangea resources that have been written thus far; it is intended as a thorough buying guide first, and a rather general (yet succinct) growing guide second."

"A masterpiece, full of charm and humor." —Dr. Rebecca W. Dolan, Director, Friesner Herbarium, Butler University Whether it's urban, suburban, or rural, nearly every property has some shade, if only on the north side of the house. Countless more are "blessed" with giant trees planted decades ago that screen out the sunlight. Under such conditions, you may think that it's impossible to have an interesting garden without a lot of work. Not so if you are willing to learn about the plethora of easygoing horticultural gems that don't require full sun. Most gardeners think only of impatiens and hostas for their shady areas, but shade gardening can be far more interesting, and even exciting—and you need not work too hard at it if you incorporate some lesser-known but easy-to-grow plants into your landscape. Judiciously mixing the common plants with the more unusual ones can help the busy, tired, or lazy gardener create a special and unique retreat. Carolyn Harstad, author of the best-selling Go Native!, organizes this book around the principle that an interesting shade garden is well balanced and has a variety of plantings. Early chapters focus on designing the low-maintenance garden. Further chapters discuss small trees, shrubs, dwarf conifers, vines, ground covers, ferns, grasses, perennials, woodland wildflowers, spring bulbs, and annuals (yes, there are annuals that enjoy shade!). She discusses hundreds of shade-tolerant plants hardy in Zones 4-8, suggests how they may be used and combined, and recommends methods to reduce garden maintenance—a universal concern in this fast-paced world. With its informative text, accurate drawings, and colorful photographs, this book is a "must have" for gardeners across much of North America.
