This is one of my favorite garden books. I get it out every time I'm planning to go plant shopping. The book contain lots of plant combinations that give inspiration for different types of foliage color, texture, and shapes. There is information on exposure (sun, shade, etc.), season of interest, soil type, growing zone, and more. The photos are beautiful.
