5.0 out of 5 stars Hole's books are the best! Nov. 30 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you live in Canada & especially Alberta - this is the book for you! I found it extremely helpful on choosing perennials for my yard. Telling me where to plant, how big they'll grow; how to "feed" them; & plants that you can easily find at local nurseries!
Highly recommend!

This is the premier author for every Albertan and prairie gardener.
My wife borrowed one from a friend, and then set me to search it out.
Because this is the reference work, more than any other, she had to have!

I have most of Lois Hole's books being from Canada myself, and her perennial and tree and shrub books were the first "real" gardening books I bought. When I jumped headfirst into perennial gardening about 5 years ago, I bought this book because of its straightforward approach. It doesn't overburden the beginner with highly technical information, but presents useful facts about a great variety of perennials. Small columns about height, colour and varieties, when and how to divide, how to grow and how to propagate each perennial are accompanied by close-up colour photographs. The latin name and/or other common names appear in smaller text at the top of each entry. Although I have now graduated to the technical, encyclopaedia type of reference books, Lois Hole's book will remain a treasured (and still often used) member of my perennial gardening library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference book Oct. 29 2009
You gotta love Lois Hole - she knows how to write a book. She keeps it simple, yet very informative and with alot of pictures. I refer to this book often and it is a definite keeper in my book collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST Perennial Book Ever Written April 14 2007
This is my favorite perennial book. I have worn this one out. I use it like a bible and refer back to it often. Lois Hole is extremely thorough and her information is correct and her book extremely useful!

This book is especially useful if you live in Western Canada or Northwestern USA.
