This talk features 40 indispensable plants that grow in challenging conditions such as shade, soggy soil or dry poor soil. They support pollinators and diverse beneficial insects, birds and other wildlife, thrive without a lot of care, resist deer browsing and pack the garden with color throughout the year.

Each plant is treated in depth, with closeup images, seasonal highlights and examples of effective use in the landscape, along with striking plant combinations.

Arranged from the earliest and lowest, they include
" Spring bulbs that keep on going year after year
" Ground-layer plants that out-compete weeds or play well with others, including groundcovers, ornamental perennials, herbs, ferns and grasses
" Shrubs and small trees
