Why Grow That When You Can Grow This? 255 Extraordinary Alternatives to Everyday Problem Plants

Andrew Keys. Timber, $24.95 trade paper (340p) ISBN 978-1-60469-286-0
Landscape designer Keys lends helpful guidance for shaking up the standard fare in a garden with exciting alternatives. Laid out visually to assist the amateur horticulturist and garden designer, standard problem-children plants are listed in the left column, followed by two or three alternate choices, their growth habits, and reasons why they work as a good alternative. Why choose a hybrid tea rose (“queen of the fussy plant prom”) when a Miniature Snowflake mock orange promises half the maintenance and twice the bloom life? The book includes 350 color photographs and strong graphics for quick referral to standard horticultural information: hardiness, shape, color, texture, light requirements, and size. This is a lively, helpful guide offering needed redress for the tired garden—and gardener. (Nov.)
