From a classic perennial border to a serendipitous planting of prairie or meadow wildflowers and grasses to an informal mixture of old-fashioned cottage-garden favorites, there are many ways to create a profusely blooming garden of sun-loving plants. In this book you’ll learn how to make the most of the colors, forms, and textures of perennials in stunning combinations that keep your garden in flower from spring to frost. You’ll also learn how to create beautiful layered plantings, the way nature layers its wild gardens, by mixing perennials with bulbs, grasses, ferns, and shrubs.
