Abstract:

"Prolific gardening writer Rice has spent many years growing what he calls "hardy" perennials. His latest book features not only many of the popular species but also some that are almost completely unknown to the average gardener. Under the heading "Winter into Spring," he discusses such plants as hellebores, irises, and hepaticas. Delphiniums, geraniums, phlox, campanulas, several kinds of grasses, clematis, peonies, pinks, and carnations are some of the perennials listed in "Summer: The Drowning Season." Rice tells the reader just about everything there is to know about these perennials. In a chapter on geraniums, for example, he discusses where and how to plant them, their color range, foliage, flowers, and hybrids. He also gives a brief history of the plant and offers tips on propagation. Forty-two color photographs and 30 black-and-white line drawings complement the chatty text."--George Cohen, Booklist.
