THE GARDEN of the future will be a shade garden, proclaims author and photographer Ken Druse in his latest book, The New Shade Garden. And that’s not just because there are now so many plants to choose from that grow in a lower-light environment. The selection is unlike in the early 1990s, when Ken published his first big shade-garden book and most people knew maybe two, hostas and astibles. Then, gardeners cursed shady areas of their yards as a liability to be eliminated instead of a refuge to be celebrated and expanded upon.

I don't think there is any one perfect gardening book, which is probably why I have 50. I bought this book for a friend who has a very shady yard in the Mid-Atlantic area, so most of these plants work great for her. In Texas where I am, not so much. I wanted great photographs, a wide variety of plants with color and a lot of different ideas on how to landscape a shady yard. I got all this and more and my friend is very happy with the book. We both like this book very much and recommend it highly to gardeners with acid soil and a reasonable amount of rain. North Central Texas where it has been over 100 degrees for a week and the soil is alkaline concrete -- this is not the book for you.

What a beautiful book jammed with pictures that actually make you long for more shady areas. I'm re-doing my whole back yard by replacing the unnatural grass (that doesn't grow there anyway) with the beauty of shade plants. The pictures alone make this a great book for your collection. It gives you tons of ideas for those shady areas that you may have lost hope for.

I've had this book for almost a month and haven't really read much of it. I'm sure I'll learn a lot once I do read it, but I am so inspired by the pictures right now I've read very little text. It's a good book and I don't think you'll be disappointed. Not to mention the price can't be beat! ENJOY!
