Great Plants Review by Conrad

Great Plants is a good way to a great landscape.I have heard of some of the plants in this book.Some plants I am looking forward to putting into my landscape.All of the plants and flowers are proven hardy and proven plants.No more wasted money buying a flower that flowers for a couple of weeks.Also these flowers after bloom have pretty foliage. A good book for anyone that likes to get their hands dirty.
