DiSabato-Aust, a horticultural designer and garden writer, describes planting and pruning techniques for perennials. She covers basic aspects like design and maintenance, bed preparation, planting and renovation, pests and diseases, staking, and division, and pruning aspects like deadheading, cutting back, pinching, disbudding, thinning, deadleafing, and preparing for winter or spring, followed by an alphabetical encyclopedia of perennials, with information on their physical characteristics, blooms, zones, pruning, other maintenance, and related plants. This edition has been revised and expanded to include 50 new encyclopedia entries, new cultivars, new photos and illustrations, updates to garden design projects, and visual stories of new design projects. The list of perennials by maintenance needs has been expanded. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
