Summary

Planning a spectacular perennial garden just got easier! Forget the time-consuming research needed to determine if one short, spreading flower will look good with a tall, stately grass. Plantswoman Nancy J. Ondra has spent 30 years experimenting with plant combinations, and she shares her one-plant-at-a-time approach for choosing plant partners-think of it as a favorite perennial looking for friends!

By focusing first on one perennial and its attributes, gardeners can select companion plants that complement it to create an endless number of groupings with eye-catching color combinations, dramatic textural displays, and stunning seasonal effects.

The Perennial Matchmaker features 90 individual perennial profiles, 300 exquisite photographs of plant partnerships, and Ondra's insight into the array of plants, including annuals, bulbs, grasses, shrubs, and other perennials, that make great combinations. Each profile features dozens of ideas for pairings, the reasons why the pairings will work, and region-specific choices.

Whether you are just starting with perennials or are a long-time gardener who wants to elevate plantings for a more cohesive look, The Perennial Matchmaker is the go-to guide for creating stunning plant medleys.
