I've never used Perennial Gardens before and contacted them after an ad on FB caught my eye. On re. .The standard of work carried out by Joe was far better than the previous company used, and the clean up was excellent. Great work, friendly company.

This is the best gardening book on perennial flowers in Texas I have used. It covers every region of the state not just a section.

Perennial Gardens for Texas. Published: 1st January 1998.

A perennial garden is an ever-changing source of delight. Each season brings new colors and textures in flowers and foliage. As the years go by, perennial plantings mature and interweave into forms more beautiful and surprising than a season's growth of annuals can ever give. Best of all, a perennial garden can grow almost anywhere with plants suited to local soils, temperatures, and rainfall.

This book is a complete guide to perennial gardening in Texas and similar regions of eastern New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and the Carolinas. In Part One, Julie Ryan offers a historical sketch of cottage gardens and perennial borders, with a sampler of some of their modern variations. In Part Two, she defines the major ecological regions of Texas and, with words and color photographs, takes you on a tour of lovely public and private gardens in each region.

You'll find all the "how to" information for creating your own garden in Part Three. Ms. Ryan describes and pictures over 300 flowering perennials, bulbs, foliage plants, and old roses suitable for Texas gardens, with lists of companion annuals, vines, shrubs, and small trees. Accompanying charts provide quick reference to each plant's preferred regions and cultivation requirements. In addition, Ms. Ryan discusses how to design a garden and select plants, prepare the beds, and deal with garden pests. She concludes with substantial lists of resources, including mail-order suppliers of perennials, bulbs, and old roses.

This is a great book very timely for fall planting. Will be of great help all year long. Now I can plan

I was looking for something to tell me more about what is good to grow in my hot Texas yard. It is very detailed and too wordy. It gives a lot of total garden examples. But I wasn't looking for "extreme yard makeover." I wanted to get the book I could look up a certain plant and it could tell me it is good in my yard or not and how to care for it. This is not the book for that.

I am a DFW area landscape designer & Julie Ryan's book is the best for lots of good information & also inspiration for easy care garden designs.

It makes a great gift for a Texas garden lover!

When I buy a landscapeplant book, I prefer it to have lots of great photos. There is too much text in this book and it reads like a text book giving too much information on the history of the plants. The photos that are in the book are very dark and small and the plants are not identified.
