Shrubs: Discover the Perfect Plant for Every Place in Your Garden

By Andy McIndoe

Shrubs are the perfect plant—they are low-maintenance, there is a variety for nearly every need, and they are widely available at garden centers and nurseries. In his new book Shrubs, Andy McIndoe—one of the world’s foremost woody plant experts—offers the information and advice needed to pick the right shrub for every site and condition. Shrubs includes plant suggestions for challenging growing conditions and restricted planting spaces, along with shrubs chosen for their desirable characteristics, including hardiness in shade, difficult soil, and harsh conditions. Every plant profile includes complete growing information, color photographs, and recommended companion plants. With this helpful guide in hand, it’s easier than ever to decide which shrubs to add to your home garden.
