A book gardeners need with climate change upon us.

Few gardens have perfect growing conditions. Invariably, there's a corner too shady, wet, windy or dry. The solution: a tough plant. Unkillable. One that will shrug off the worst conditions, and even thrive despite them.

Tough Plants for Tough Places is an easy-to-use, fully illustrated guide to more than 100 virtually unkillable plants for your garden - whatever the growing conditions. With a handy guide to symbols used in the book to denote special conditions and the plant's properties and advantages, Tough Plants for Tough Places includes:

  • An extensive directory with more than 100 plants chosen for their ability to survive difficult conditions while adding beauty and color to the garden
  • Techniques to assess your garden and improve what you have
  • Pointers to match available plants to garden conditions
  • Information to help you understand soil and microclimates created by sun, shade and wind
  • Advice on caring for plants in tough situations
  • Suggestions on where and how to plant
  • Practical tips on getting started, planting, routine care and weed control
  • The book now includes Russian Sage, Coneflowers (echinaceas), Blanketflower and other drought-tolerant favorites.
